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!
