Few weeks ago I have visited San Francisco passport agency called Travel Visa Pro. I was able to get my passport as quickly as the same day. This is good news for anyone who has found that their passport is close to expiring and they need to have one. It is important to note that while it is possible to get your passport quickly it is not guaranteed. The more you know about the passport process the greater the chance of you getting yours quickly.
Schedule An Appointment
The Department of State’s websites states that you will need to schedule an appointment before you visit the passport agency. You can do this by calling a representative who will inform you about the next available appointment. However, the San Francisco passport agency does accept the applications of people who have not made an appointment. The only issue with this is that people who have made an appointment will be given priority.
This means that depending on the time you arrive at the agency and how many people there are with appointments, you may not be seen. If this happens you will have to come back the next day to try and submit your application. This is why it is recommended that you schedule an appointment.
Complete The Application Form
The agency will have applications on site it is highly recommended that you complete your form before you arrive. You can complete the online passport application form and then print it to take with you. You can also download the form that you need, print it and then complete it. If you are going to print the incomplete form then you need to complete it using a pen with black ink.
It is important that you verify that all the information on your application form is correct. If there are any mistakes this can lead to delays in your application process.
Have The Required Documents
When you apply you need to have certain documents with you. The first is the evidence of travel because the Travel Visa Pro with expedite applications for people who are planning to travel abroad in the next 14 to 30 days. This is particularly important if you are going to a country where you require a visa.
You should also bring printed copies of your itinerary, any hotel reservations or other proof that you are going to be traveling. You will also need to have a recent passport photo with you when you go to the passport agency.
Submitting The Application
When the passport agency opens a guard will form 2 lines, one for those with an appointment and one for those without. The people without an appointment will have their documents checked and if you do not have the correct supporting documents you will not be allowed entry. Small groups of applicants will then be allowed into the building where they will pass through a security check.
After this, you will need to take the elevator to the 5th floor. There you will pass through a further security check before you are able to submit your application.
