How can you do it yourself?
You must understand the US Department of State’s processing times when applying for a passport. For a first-time request, all documents required include proof of US citizenship, a passport-sized photograph, ID, and Form D-11.
You should always have your proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate or naturalization certificate, with you at all times. If you need to replace your naturalization certificates, you are eligible for a two-year limited validity passport. Also, passport photos are easy to obtain. It takes only a few minutes at most pharmacies. The nine Travel Visa Pro offices also offer this service.
Once you’ve assembled all the necessary documents, which should take less than a day if you don’t misplace your birth certificate, you can submit your application for your passport.
What is the fastest way to get a passport?
You will need to schedule an appointment with a regional passport agency if you want to apply for a renewal or a first-time passport. Appointments are dependent on how busy the office gets. It may take several days for a time slot to be available during the peak travel season. We can make these appointments for you so that you don’t have to wait in line or miss work.
The processing time will vary depending on when you have an appointment and your passport application has been accepted by an official. In-person applications usually take two weeks to process. However, if you have proof of your immediate travel, you can pay $60 for expedited processing (a few days). Officials can often return passports quickly if there is a family death or an emergency. We can help you get a passport within eight hours if you have the right appointment.
What is the fastest way to get a passport sent by mail?
We can send your passport renewal application to the US Department of State, as many Americans don’t live near a regional passport center or are unable to travel to that location. If they are unable or unwilling to travel, first-timers can use a third-party agency.
Mail-in applications take longer to process than those submitted in person. Although consular and passport officers may be able to give you an estimate of when your passport will return, mail-in applications require that you wait several weeks to ensure everything is correct. Mail-in applications can be expedited processed to reduce processing time. However, a renewal may still take several weeks or a few days if it’s lucky.
Texas Passport Center offers all passport services and several passport processing options depending on your situation. Whether it’s your new passport, or you need to renew passport in Texas, our professionals are well versed in the details of the passport application process.
