Rescue operations world-wide are gathering steam, many have made the journey already with many more needed. TravelPassportVisaCenter.com opened a 24 hour toll free hotline- 800-431-1141- for those aid workers and volunteers in need of emergency passport service for travel to Japan in as little as 24 hours. TPVC is extending business hours and offering weekend assistance to emergency response personnel in need of new or renewed passports nationwide including Alaska, Hawaii, USVI and Puerto Rico.

So far teams from Farifax County, Virginia and LA County in California have members of their search and rescue teams deployed to Japan already underway combing the wreckage for survivors, and they will be joined by many more. The division of US Department of State handling passport applications processes at a rate of 3-4 weeks, at a minimum. The hotline was opened over the weekend taking calls regarding the passport application process and reserving slots for those emergency workers traveling to Japan much sooner- many within 24 hours.

“It is so important for the help to get there now- it is crucial to get to those trapped and freezing the medical attention needed,” remarked Adam Kranz, owner of TPVC. Unfortunately, Mr. Kranz is no stranger to crisis situations- providing expedited passports in substantially less time to those who traveled to Haiti, Chile and Indonesia when they experienced similar disasters.
