Houston Passport Office – Getting a Same Day Passport

by on December 18, 2010 at 10:36 pm

After exceeding 150 comments on post detailing my original experience getting a same day passport, I decided to go through the comments and separate the experiences and helpful tips by passport office.

These comments and tips were related to people’s experiences at the Houston Passport Office.

From Layman:

This was one of the most helpful blogs I have ever visited. Saved us about $200 for the expediting service + $50 to $75 on Fedex + time on the phone + headache of waiting…
I noticed on Wednesday night that my minor daughter’s passport had only 2 months left and we are leaving next Tuesday for Europe - requirement is to have at least 6 months validity. Around midnight Wednesday got an appointment for 8.30am on Thursday at the Houston office. Got the pp photos at a 24 hr Kinkos and we were at the office at 8.35am - out by 9am. The officer asked us to pick up the passport on Friday 2.30pm. Just did…
So, a big THANKS to Dave. Total cost: $145 at the office + parking and photos ($14). Time spent: 30 minutes (about 20 minutes at the Agency on the first visit and about 10 minutes today for pickup. They take all major credit cards (no extra fee) at the Passport office. And, do remember that if you are getting a passport for a minor, BOTH parents have to be present and a few other specifics - all very clearly listed out on the Govt site.
IF you live near a Regional Center - DON’T waste your money with an expediting service.
Thanks, Dave!
