Child Passport

LA CHILD PASSPORT – REQUIREMENTS TO EXPEDITE THE PROCESS

Parents who are traveling out of the country may not realize until the last minute that they need a passport for a child. When it comes to documentation for traveling internationally, infants are not overlooked. Any child under the age of 16 will be required to have a valid passport for children before they can enter other countries.

We can help to expedite a child’s Passport so that you can be prepared to leave the country with your kids in tow. Due to increasing stringency on allowing travel of children, you will need  to find the Acceptance Agent office that is nearest you in order to witness the application and verify your documentation. Once the documents are completed and sealed in an envelope, you will ship them to us via FedEx or bring them directly to our office for us to process. It is important for you to contact us to verify that you want to use our quick LA Child Passport Services and are requesting a passport for children who will be traveling with you and of which you have legal custody.

The best way to prepare for your trip is to examine your passport and also to apply for passports for any of your children that will be traveling. When the realization comes late, the only step you can take is to have us expedite your children’s U.S. passport so that you can obtain it in as little as 24 hours. Even though planning in advance is always the best and most secure option, our LA child passport services makes it faster and easier to get the passports you require for all of your family members.
