Lost your passport? Did you need to get a new passport? Are you unsure of how to get a passport? Do you need to get your passport today? Do you need an emergency passport? Well, you’re not alone. In an effort to keep passports in a safe place, passport holders often put them in too safe a place and end up losing their passports altogether. Stolen passports are also possible, but passport theft usually occurs once a passport holder is traveling. People also lose their passports during travel.
In you recall a previous Rush Passport passport blog entry introduced our readers to Mexican soccer player, Carlos Vela. In April 2010, Vela lost his passport and ended up missing the biggest game of his career – after he was unable to travel to Barcelona for the Arsenal’s Champions League quarter-final soccer match. His team lost the match and now Vela actually takes his passport with him to bed!
The latest passport blunder came at the hands of another athlete, star cricket player Graeme Swann. Swann realized that his passport was lost right just 48 hours before departure for a big match in Australia.
Swann actually tweeted to his 78,000 Twitter followers “Are passports still absolutely required to travel overseas? If so then I fear today may be one of frantic searching.”
Twitter would not have been my first choice if I discovered that my passport was missing 48 hours before a scheduled flight abroad. I would’ve called Rush Passport™!
However, all turned out fine five hours later when Swann again turned to Twitter to add: “My passport turned up in my ‘safe’ place, down the back of my kitchen bin.”
Losing a passport is no fun! But, here’s some advice: Don’t go to Twitter – visit Rush Passport™.
