How fast can I renew an expired passport?

Question: My daughter's passport was issued when she was 13 years old. She is now 18 years old and her passport has already expired. We are traveling on April 16th. How can I get her passport renewed by that date?


Answer: To get a passport in less than two weeks, you have two options. One, you can submit the application at a regional passport agency or you can authorize a professional passport expediter to submit it for you.

Since you live in Massachusetts, your daughter can submit her application at the Boston Passport Agency. She needs to set up an appointment first by calling 1-877-487-2778. For a list of all the required documentation, click the link below.

How to Get a New Passport

If your daughter does not have the time to schedule the appointment and appear herself, she can get an expediter to do it for her. Note, she must still appear at a nearby acceptance facility in order to take an oath and sign the application in the presence of an agent. She will then take the sealed package and mail it by express mail to the expediting service. To apply for this service, click the link below.
