Passport Procedures-Amendment to Expedited Passport Processing Regulation
Document Number: E9-22417
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-09-17
Agency: Department of State
This rule revises the expedited passport process and changes the definition of expedited passport processing from three business days, beginning when the application arrives at a passport agency or when the request for expedited processing is approved, to the number of business days published on the Department's Web site at http:// www.travel.state.gov. This change ensures that the Department can continue to offer this service consistent with its regulations while maintaining sufficient flexibility to adapt to fluctuations in passport demand. It also ensures that the public can easily determine the current standards for expedited passport processing.
