For the fastest way to get your passport use RUSHMYPASSPORT.COM. Why do I recommend this company? Well, I personally had to order a replacement passport that I needed in 3 days to travel but all of the roads, shipping companies and basically everything including electricity was closed in almost all of Florida because of serious hurricanes (yes, plural, hurricanes…). I have no idea how the hell they had this thing delivered but they did…. And it wasn’t me bothering them, they were calling me on the 2nd and third day to find out if I was ok, and if I was flooded out of my house, in case they needed to have it delivered somewhere else. Like I said I have no idea how they did it but someone from a private shipping company knocked on my door, while Tampa was literally a ghost town with debris floating in the streets, people kayaking down Bayshore Blvd (our major road, the longest running sidewalk in American…Google it!) And said “here’s your passport”. WTH, is what I was thinking…. But I was happy and am now their number 1 fan!
