San Francisco is a major hub for international travel in the United States. One of the 26 US Passport Offices where passports are issued is located in San Francisco, CA. Whether you're getting a passport renewal
, or a new passport
, you cannot simply go to the passport office if you need your passport urgently. The US Passport office in San Francisco will only handle super-urgent appointment for "life-or-death" situations or if your date of international travel departure is within 14 days and you have a proof of it. However, scheduling an urgent passport appointment to get your passport issued is close to impossible if you try to do it directly. Luckily, we have a service with a 90% success rate in scheduling a super-urgent passport appointment for same-day passport issue.
That means, if you contact us on Monday morning, you may get an appointment confirmed for Wednesday or possibly Tuesday and have your passport issued the same day!
Check entry requirements to the destination you're traveling to. Are you traveling within two weeks? Do you need a visa
in your new passport
prior to departure? Does your current passport book have at least six months’ validity, which is usually the standard for entry to most countries?
If you do not need your passport super-urgently, but have at least 8 weeks before your international travel, you can save big time. If you are willing to do a little legwork, for just $99 you can have us supervise your application process,
fill all passport forms for you and oversee the process for you. You should get your passport in 5-7 weeks.
If you’re applying for an expedited passport renewal
in San Francisco with Travel Visa Express, remember to bring or send us your current, original, undamaged passport (expired for fewer than 15 years or still valid), two copies of the DS-82 form, a check for $170 made out to the US Department of State, your travel itinerary or copy of your ticket, two copies of signed authorization forms, and two passport-sized photos
If you travel often or may be needing multiple travel visas issued in short time frame, we highly suggest applying for a second valid US passport.
Yes, you can have two valid passports at the same time — it's a lifesaver for business travelers or digital nomads.
If you changed your name, don't forget to update your passport! Yes, that's a good reason to change your passport in order to avoid problems at the border. This procedure is called just like that: US passport name change.
Remember, there are two sizes of US Passports offered: a 26- and a 52-page books are now available from the US State Department. New pages are no longer allowed to be added to your existing book as of January 2016, and no glasses may be worn in passport pictures. A thick new passport book costs just as much as a thin one, so get the 52-page one!
