There are many tasks involved in planning an international trip. One of the most important, of course, is obtaining the proper travel documents. The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative requires all American citizens to present a valid passport when exiting and re-entering the United States. Routine processing of applications can take six weeks or more. What do you when you only have a day or two to get one? This article will provide information on the fastest way to get an emergency passport.
In today’s world, a valid passport is a travel necessity and not everyone has one. The comforting news is that it is possible to get an emergency passport in a couple of different ways.
Everyone who travels out of the United States or its territories now must have a passport. Since June 1, 2009, there have been no ifs, ands or buts about the matter, you must have this documentation. This means that persons having family living outside of the U. S. need to take the time and pay the price to have their passport for family emergencies. If you do not have a passport and a problem arises, you will need to apply for an emergency passport.
In cases where you need to leave the country soon, the routine passport application is simply not an option. That’s because routine passport applications currently take around four to six weeks to complete, and if you’re really in a hurry, then that’s too long a wait.
