What if I need to travel internationally while my passport is being renewed?
Question: My passport expires in September, and I need to travel in October. However, I may also need to travel to Switzerland in August. Is there some document that I can print out to show that I have a valid passport, but it is currently being renewed?
A passport book is the only acceptable document for air travel to another country. In fact, you need to renew your passport before you travel to Switzerland. Although you are not required to obtain a visa, your passport must be valid for at least three months beyond the period of stay in order to enter Switzerland.
Expediting a passport renewal by mail takes 2-3 weeks. The only way to get your passport renewed in less time is to submit the application at a regional passport agency where it can be done in one day.
There is an agency in Atlanta. It is located in the following address:Atlanta Passport Agency
230 Peachtree St NW, Suite 1000
Atlanta, GA 30303
