You know that it takes six to eight weeks to get your new passport by mail so now what do you do? Emergency passport services are available for just such an occasion. The process for receiving your passport in an expedited manner through emergency passport services is the same as a regular passport application or renewal with the exception of the fact that you might be asked to pay an additional fee to speed up the processing of the application.

In most cases you can go right into your local passport office and tell them you need to expedite your passport application and they can recommend a good emergency passport service to help you get the passport faster. You will need all the same documentation and all of the same forms and they will still need to filled out correctly and fully, but the application can be processed faster.
