Where do we need to go to renew childrens' passports?
(Patrick AFB, FL)
Question: Our children have passports that expired four years ago. I've seen from your website that we have to appear in person to renew their passports. My question is, in person where? Can we go to one of the expedited places your website lists locally, or do we need to go to the Miami office?
We're going on a cruise in March.
Thanks for your help. Answer:
First of all, you are not required to travel with a passport if you are going on a closed loop cruise
unless the countries which you plan to visit require it.
If your cruise is not closed loop and you are required to get passports for your children, then you can apply at either a passport application acceptance facility or at a regional passport agency.
Passport Application Acceptance Facilities are usually found in local post offices, county clerk's offices or public libraries. Applications submitted at acceptance facilities are processed in 4-6 weeks for regular service and 2-3 weeks for expedited service. To find one near you, visit the list of Florida Passport Offices
The regional passport agency attends to applicants who plan to travel within two weeks or less or within four weeks if they need both passports and entry visas. Applications submitted at a regional agency can be processed as fast as the same day. For more information, visit the page of the Miami Passport Agency
