If you need a passport in two weeks or less, you can pay for a private expediting service to get the passport for you. This may be the easier option, but it does come at an additional cost. You will pay the expedited government fees plus the Expeditor/ Courier fees to process your passport quickly and securely. This fee is paid online directly to the expeditor service, plus shipping. This service is guaranteed as long as you are eligible for a passport.
