Minnesota Postal Services

At any Minnesota Postal Services, there are two passport application processing options. The first is normal processing which takes 4 to 8 weeks. It is the most used of the two options because it is the cheapest. The next is expedited processing, and it takes 2 to 3 weeks to get a new passport. The users of this choice need their traveling document sooner than four weeks for their trip. The cost is more at the post office, and proof of travel is required.

Same Day Service

If you have a business trip or an emergency to leave in a hurry, a private expeditor or a regional passport agency can assist you. Either of these businesses has the authority to process an application right away. To use same day service, there are specific documents you must submit. For example, you must provide proof of travel, two authorization letters, a company letter (if the trip is business related), and evidence of an emergency. A regional passport center, unlike a private expeditor, request you get an appointment before going to an office. To get one, you must call the National Passport Information Center toll-free number. Also, not every state has an agency, so you may need to travel to another for your interview. Fortunately, you can go to the Minneapolis Passport Agency.  The cost for same day service is way more when compared to normal processing. So, before you start the process make sure you gather all the supporting documents and complete the correct form before applying for a new passport. By doing so, you can avoid any delays during the process.
