Can I Get Expedited Service After Submitting Passport Renewal Form?

by Hakim
(Maryland)

Question: Just last week I sent an application in for renewal of my passport for a trip to be taken in late June. Yesterday I was informed that my visa application would need to be submitted by May 14. I am not sure if the passport will be back to me by then. What are my options?


Answer: Regular processing takes 4-6 weeks so it is possible that your passport will be delivered to you before May 14.

If it does arrive after this date, it will probably be only a few days to a week or so later. If this occurs, you can expedite your visa request.
