How to Get a Passport in One Week or less!
I believe that the total bill for my passport via express mail was around $115. When you go to get your passport (if you are not renewing it), you must have a certified copy of your birth certificate. This is not the copy with your parents signature or your baby feet, it is a certificate from the state offices for the state in which you were born. You also need to bring your social security card. You have to go to a full service post office that carry the form you need to obtain your passport. You should call ahead to make sure that the post office you are going to has these forms available. If they do not, they should be able to refer you to a post office that does. You can also get passport forms from the U.S. Postal Service website. I believe they guarantee that you will have your passport within one to two weeks rather than 6-8 weeks. I think I received mine in around 7 days. If you want to save a lot of money the snail approach of 6 to 8 weeks will cost you much less.
