"Where can I get a passport fast?" is a question many people are asking. Gone are the days of traveling abroad with a birth certificate or driver's license. If you plan to leave the United States, you'll need to have a passport. And in many cases, people find themselves needing a passport fast.

What are your options, then, for rushing a passport? You can go directly through the US Passport agency, typically accessed through the US Post Office. However, this process may take from 4 to 6 weeks to complete. That's why many people choose to use a passport expediting service to get their passport much faster even within 1 business day.

Cost:

$129 - $349, depending on service needed

Since 2002, VisaHQ has offered online visa and passport applications. With offices worldwide, this passport expediting service makes a clear mark for business and leisure travelers alike.

VisaHQ provides processing options for new and renewal passports, name changes, children's passports, and lost passports, along with second passport services for "frequent travelers that do not have time to acquire visas between trips".

On the main U.S. Passport tab, you'll need to click on the type of passport you need, place your order, and then begin to enter the information for the required forms (such as DS-11, Letter of Authorization, and so forth). How quickly do you need your passport from VisaHQ? Currently, there are only three service levels:

  • 11 business days: $129
  • 7 business days: $199
  • 3 business days: $349

Unfortunately, there is no service offered that allows the most expedited timeframe of 1 business day, making VisaHQ slightly less competitive within the market. Their prices also tend to be higher when comparing similar processing speeds.

On the other hand, VisaHQ does give their customers real-time status updates via email or text. If you're a nervous traveler or simply need to know exactly where your passport is in the process, this could be a helpful perk.

Most users find the VisaHQ service to be worth the investment. Although the majority of their customers seem to take advantage of their visa services rather than for passports, the general consensus is that VisaHQ is reputable, efficient, and effective. For added peace of mind, you can rest assured that at the time of our review, VisaHQ maintained an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. We would love to see the company add more current reviews to their site; when we visited, their most current review was more than a year old, though their social media channels were much more up-to-date.

Overall, VisaHQ is an established passport service that can be trusted to get your documents in order and processed quickly - though, perhaps, not as quickly as some services may offer.

Continued from above

Even with the few exceptions - such as "closed-loop" cruises that leave from and return to the same US port - you may have issues if an emergency requires you to return unexpectedly to the US or if you encounter problems in your ports of call.

And recently, nine states (Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Washington) were put on notice that their state IDs would not be sufficient even for boarding domestic flights. Until those states have changed their IDs to meet federal standards, you could find yourself in need of an emergency passport in order to fly, even within the US, if you call one of those places home.

With a passport expediting company, your fees will vary depend on how fast you need your passport. Incredibly, you could have your passport - new or renewed - within 24 hours. If you've got a last-minute international business trip or vacation and need to have your passport ASAP, a passport expediting service may make all the difference between "bon voyage" and "bummer".

How should you decide which passport service to use? Here are several things to keep in mind as you consider which expediting service meets your needs:

  • Processing Time. Can the service get your passport to you in the time you have available?
  • Cost. What will you pay to get your passport as quickly as you need it? Are there a variety of pricing packages available, so that you don't pay for faster service than necessary? Keep in mind that you will still need to pay the required government fees for your application, in addition to the costs for expediting your passport.
  • Reputation. Does the expediting service have a solid reputation for delivering accurate passports on time? What have other clients said about their experiences with the business?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best passport services available today. We hope this information will help you get your passport as quickly as possible, for a stress-free trip!
