As Americans prepare for international travel this summer, they face a new obstacle: the passport office NYC is swamped, and applicants must wait in long lines to schedule appointments at local passport acceptance facilities. Many are even having to go outside their geographic area to snag an appointment. The situation is reminiscent of the pandemic’s impact last year, when staffing shortages delayed routine and expedited processing.
How can I get Pakistani passport in USA?
While some people’s experience at the New York Passport Agency has been less than ideal, others have found that it’s a lot better than expected. One management consultant we spoke with raved about his recent trip to the Hudson Street branch, calling it “absolutely fantastic” and “five mother effing stars.”
The New York Passport Agency is open from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Those applying in person should come prepared with the following items:
Original or certified copies of all supporting documents – Birth Certificate (must have a raised seal) and one copy; Naturalization Papers; Valid Photo ID, either a Driver’s License or an official passport book and card. Photo requirements are 2 inches by 2 inches, with a white background and front view of head and shoulders.
Those looking to avoid the line and get their passport processed quickly should consider using a third-party service, such as Travel Visa Pro, to submit their application. Unlike the New York Passport Agency, Travel Visa Pro will ensure all i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed, reducing errors and enabling faster shipping. Moreover, they provide an online portal that lets travelers track their passport through the process, so they can keep an eye on it every step of the way.
