According to travel experts, the summer is the most popular season for family travel. More families use their passports during the summer than any other time of year. Summer vacations must be planned in advance to get the best reservations available. The same is true for getting a passport. Waiting for the last minute to get your passport can cause major problems. It is a good idea to get your passport well before you are scheduled for travel. However, getting a passport early is not always an option. If you are unable to get your passport early, then don’t worry – you can still get an expedited passport. Believe it or not, you can even get an expedited passport on the same day that you apply.
There are circumstances under which you would qualify for an emergency passport. One such case where you would be able to get an expedited passport is if you already have airline tickets overseas. This means that you would qualify for an expedited passport.
It is important to know that everyone in the traveling party including infants need passports in order to travel abroad. When it comes to passports for children it must be known that all US citizens including infants & children must have a valid passport in order to travel internationally by air. If you are traveling by land or sea to Canada or Mexico from the United States, then a passport card is another option. However, travel experts advise that all people should have a passport booklet rather than passport card just in case of an emergency that requires reentry to the US by air.
It is also a good idea for existing passport holders to check their passport expiration date. Many people think that their passports are good forever, but in reality an adult passport is valid for 10 years. Child passport are valid for 5 years.
