Fast Damage Passport Replacement Overview
There are a few different ways to secure your damaged, lost, or stolen passport replacement quickly. Fast damage passport service is available for all U.S. citizens. Replacing your damaged passport is like applying for a brand new passport. Your old passport will not be considered valid due to the damage. How much damage is too much damage? Well, any damage beyond reasonable wear and tear may get your passport denied when traveling. We will explore each of the options here so you can make an informed decision on expediting your passport replacement in time for your trip. You can expedite through the post office, a private service, or through a regional agency. Additional fees will apply for expedited service ($60 on top of the routine fees of $135).
Expedite through Post Office
The first way we will discuss is the slowest ‘expedited’ option. You can expedite the Damage Passport Service through the Post Office. This method takes 2-3 weeks but it is not guaranteed. You can visit your local acceptance agent or the U.S. State Department’s website for more information.

Registered Passport Courier Service
The second option to apply for an expedited fast damage passport replacement is through a U.S. State Department-registered service. This process takes two weeks or less, even as quick as 24 hours if necessary. There are many Expedited Passport Services. You should make sure you read the reviews of each company to determine which one is best for you. Reputation goes a long way with Registered Passport Courier Services for applicants needing a damaged passport replacement. Additional fees for the service will apply.
Regional Passport Agency
Lastly, you can also make an appointment directly through a Regional Passport Agency if you are near a major city with an office. The main issue is that you must live in or near a major U.S. city with a Regional Passport Agency and you often need to get an appointment. Many travelers find the appointment process difficult to manage for the damaged passport service. Additionally, you must have confirmed travel plans in the next 5 days. However if there are no available appointments, then you may have to travel to another Agency. Regional Passport Agencies are only located in select major cities. If you are able to find a location that has walk-in hours, be sure to show up early as the lines can be long.
