entry into a foreign country. This rule exists to protect the traveler
should they encounter medical, legal or other issues resulting in an

Western Europe indicate three to six months of validity are required and
countries such as Hong Kong routinely allow people to enter with one

policy at the discretion of the immigration officer. Airlines are also
known to be conservative on passport validity so when in doubt, check

Can you get an Expedited Passport on your own without a company like ItsEasy ? Post Offices do not do true Expedited Passports. Their "expedited" mail-in service is actually 2-4 weeks - and if there's a problem with your application, you can expect the delays to be considerable to resolve. If you have a trip coming up, this is definitely not the way to go! There are U.S. Government Passport Agencies located around the country. Perhaps you live near one (and perhaps you don't!). You can try to make an appointment at one of these Passport Agencies to get an expedited passport yourself - but without using ItsEasy, you face the same problem - has someone reviewed your application to make sure it is correct and ready for submission? As a Registered Agent, ItsEasy has direct access to the Passport Agencies to get your expedited passport without appointments and ... we almost forgot ... having to go yourself and wait in line!
For obtaining travel visas, ItsEasy has offices in New York and Washington, DC, key cities to obtain travel visas for just about every country you may plan to travel to. Similar to our Passport services, we review your Visa Applications to make sure they are correct before submissions (incorrect applications can cause significant delays in obtaining a visa), and we deliver your applications to the Embassies or Consulates to obtain the visas on your behalf, as your agent. We wait in line so you don't have to!
