FedEx Is Now Offering 24-Hour Passport Processing

For those who have a bad habit of leaving their travel planning to the last minute, FedEx is here to save the day. The shipping company is now offering a special service that will allow you to get a new passport within just 24 hours.

The service includes updated passport photos; rushed passports or renewals; children’s passports; and replacing lost, damaged, or stolen passports. It also allows you to track your passport throughout the process. To register, all you have to do is stop into your closest FedEx location or visit its website.

Don’t expect such quick service to be cheap, however. For new passport applications with 24-hour processing, you will have to pay $449, with rushed shipping costing $90 for inbound and outbound delivery. Keep in mind that you’ll also need to pay $170 in fees from the government, meaning you could be paying over $700 total for your new, expedited passport.

If you need a new passport, you should obviously plan well in advance, but it’s still nice to know that FedEx has your back.
