U.S. Passport Service Guide announces the addition of the fortieth listing to their online directory of private passport and visa expediting services (http://www.us-passport-service-guide.com/directory).
“The number of passports processed by the U.S. Department of State Passport Services nearly doubled over the last decade and, with it, the number of companies that expedite travel documents,” said U.S. Passport Service Guide’s founder William Manor. “The purpose of creating this free directory was to provide U.S. citizens who need to obtain, renew or replace a passport within two weeks or less a place to compare and evaluate the different expediters and their services.”
In the directory, travelers will find a brief company description, travel document services offered, fees, guarantees, tracking methods, location and contact information for each expediter.
The travel document services offered by expediters vary greatly. Not all the expediters offer same day service. Many limit the countries for which they expedite travel visas. Only a few offer complimentary services such as obtaining birth certificates, marriage certificates, divorce decrees, authentications, legalizations and police clearance records. “It is important that travelers look for an expediting company that can attend to all their travel document needs,” said Mr. Manor.
The directory allows travelers to examine processing times and fees. Expediters break down their fee structure and processing times differently. “A comparison of prices can help travelers save as much as $100 for each passport expedited,” added Mr. Manor.
Travelers who need to obtain, renew or replace a passport within ten days or less face a lot of stress. One resource that helps minimize this stress is online tracking. Online tracking allows passport applicants the ability to know exactly when the expediter receives their application, when it is delivered to the Passport Agency, when it is picked up and when it is placed in the mail to be returned to its owner. By using the directory, travelers can find a service that offers this feature.
In addition to the directory, U.S. Passport Service Guide provides step-by-step instructions for obtaining, renewing or replacing a passport for both adults and children. Passport applications are available for download directly from their website.
