A San Diego passport agency is ready to assist San Diego, California residents who want to have their passport applications expedited. This passport agency entertains the concerns of applicants who wish to travel overseas in less than two weeks or if these applicants are required to get a foreign visa within four weeks. The agency also caters to those who have passport renewal concerns.
You have to make an appointment at your local passport photo provider. It is all right, though, as no charges are needed to make an appointment and clients must not pay any agency, business, or individual asking for an appointment charge. You should also pay a $60 expediting fee together with the application fees in order to apply for a passport at the agency.
At the passport agency and processing center, you do not need to present proof of travel. When you call to make an appointment and an automated system answers, you may hear that such proof is needed. However, the agency does not ask for it unless you have an emergency.
For immediate foreign travel (leaving in five business days) and in life-or-death emergencies, the passport agency also offers a will-call service. The agency will inform the client when the passport can be picked up using this service based on the client’s travel documents. For all other agency customers, passports will be handed out within eight business days of applying. The agency, during a client’s appointment, will inform the client on how the passport will be sent to him or her.
There are some things to bring during a passport processing appointment. These are the: accomplished forms, necessary supporting documents, appointment confirmation number, and payment methods to cover expediting and application fees. These include debit/check (not ATMs) cards, major credit cards, exact cash, money orders, or bank drafts.
When you arrive at the passport agency to process his or her passport, there are also a few tips to follow. You should arrive early to allow ample time to go through metal detectors and building security. At the designated window, you should present your appointment confirmation number or social security number.
When you receive your number, you are advised to sit down and wait for the number to be called. When your turn arrives, you will then go to a designated window at the San Diego passport agency and have your forms and supporting documents reviewed by a passport specialist.
