Travel & Passports
We may be able to help you expedite your passport application in an emergency, report lost passports, and monitor overseas travel restrictions. For general questions regarding the State Department's Bureau of Consular Affairs passport services, see the State Department's Frequently Asked Questions about Passports web page or call the Passport National hotline: 1-877-487-2778.
Further, one can pay fees to expedite the processing, which currently is taking 4 to 6 weeks; therefore, best to allow for 6 weeks to get the passport. Emergency travel must have some documentation to show reasons (family funeral; wedding; terminally ill family member, etc).
Please reach out to my office if you encounter the following when trying to obtain a passport:
- If you have emergency travel and unable to get an appointment the week of departure
- Pay expedited fees for your passport and it has been 6 weeks and you have not received it yet
- If you receive a letter from the Passport Agency requesting more information
The following information is for immigrants. Please contact my office for assistance with any questions or problems you may have.
