If your relative passed away or is ill and you need to travel as soon as possible but you have an expired passport, please contact our office so we may contact the Passport Agency. You will need to submit an expedited request and provide us with the 1) application control number, 2) a screenshot of your purchased flight, 3) evidence of an ill or deceased relative (i.e., a medical document that must be translated in English by a certified translator) and 4) evidence of the relationship to the ill or deceased relative. Please see the Department of State’s application for expedited passport applications here.
If it is not a life or death situation, but you need to travel quickly, you can contact our office and we can help you submit an expedited request to renew your passport. Please note, even expedited requests can take up to 12 weeks.
Before you book your travel, we also encourage you to look up travel restrictions. Visit travel.state.gov, click on the "International Travel" tab and scroll down. On the right hand side, you will find a search bar where you may type the country you are visiting. Updated information on the travel guidance will be provided.
