No matter what the reason is that you need your passport, we can help you.

The number one reason people realize they suddenly need their passport, is the country they are about to visit needs to see that you have more more than 6 months left on your passport before it expires. If you have less than six months left until the expiration date, pretty much consider your passport expired.

You have choices for renewing your passport, changing the name on your passport, or even applying for your first-ever passport for yourself or a child in your family.

You know what comes after Memorial Day Weekend? Summer travel season kicks off!

Despite recent controversies with some airlines, the Washington, D.C.-based industry group Airlines for America has stated they believe there will be approximately a 4% increase in air travel this year with some 234-million passengers flying between June 1st and August 31st.

One thing travelers with destinations outside the United States should do is make sure their passports have at least 6 months left on their passports before the expiration date. If you need to renew your passport, we can make it happen in as little as 24 hours. Expect a wait of an average of 5-7 weeks through the U.S. Passport Agency.

Best Western is reporting advance booking of its 2000+ hotels across the U.S. is reporting a 7% increase in summer bookings. Other hotel chains are reporting similar increases. Which means, you can expect airports to be crowded all summer.

According to Airlines for America, there will be an all-time high this year for summer travel. So conventional wisdom tells you , plan your trip, book your hotel early, and make sure your passport is ready to go!

At what age does a baby need a passport to travel internationally?
We’ll answer that question with a question: how soon are you traveling? Even newborns need a passport if you’re traveling outside the United States. If you have a child traveling with you under 15-years of age, you’ll need to apply for a child passport.

A friend told me if my passport has less than six months before the expiration date it’s basically expired. Is that true?
Yep. If you have less than six months left, most countries won’t allow entry. If you need to renew – we can renew your passport as fast as 24-hours.

Is it possible to have two passports at the same time?
Short answer: yes. Longer answer: there are some special requirements to meet to have a secondary passport. Having a travel destination between politically sensitive countries is one of the most commonly approved reasons. Second passports have a validity of 2 (two) years and many not be renewed.   Approval of the issue of a second valid passport in determined solely by the U.S. Passport Agency, based the applicant’s requirement for the passport.

With many American states given the reprieve until 2017 to comply with identification requirements, having a passport for travel within the United States still isn’t a thing. In the future, that may change. In the meantime you still need your passport for traveling outside the United States. Here are some of the most common passport issues we see daily and how to handle them.

expired passport - Google Search.clipularYour passport is within 6 months of expiring.
You might as well consider your passport expired if there is less than six months left until the expiration date. Go ahead and renew your passport.

The country you’re entering requires a blank page in your passport for stamping upon entry, and you do not have the blank pages available. 
Until January 2016, you could add pages to your passport. Now you need to go through the renewal process to add pages, no matter how much extra time is left until expiration.
