Did you know that it can take more than 6 weeks to obtain a passport? In the next three years about 47 million U.S. passports will expire. The government does not have the resources to keep up current processing times with a demand that large. Imagine the opportunity for your travel agency, to be able to offer a solution for customers who need a passport quickly during this unique time in the US where it will take potentially 6 weeks or more to obtain a passport through normal channels.
Swift Passport and Visa Services is an innovative US Passport and international visa expediting service. Based in Chicago, Swift was established in 2008 by husband and wife team Rob and Laurie Lee. After living abroad for 2 years in Central America, they identified the need for expedited Passport and Visa services due to their own challenges securing travel documents in their short stints visiting the US. In 2009, Swift began partnering with Travel Agencies and business travelers across the USA offering a variety of unique business models new to the passport and visa industry.
With a network of partnerships nationwide, Swift Passport Services can reach clients in all 50 states. We’re registered with the US Department of State and have regular access to all foreign consulates nationwide in six major cities. Our Chicago office at 1 East Erie Street is strategically located down the hall from the China Consulate to better serve our clientele. This has allowed us to better accommodate the vast number of people needing assistance traveling to China.
With Swift, you can count on a friendly, experienced staff of passport experts to help you get the job done on time so that your customers don’t have to worry about missing important international trips. Businesses that choose to work directly with the US Passport Agency or foreign consulates can spend upwards of four to eight weeks trying to obtain passports. Swift Passport Services can deliver those same passports and visas in as little as one business day. Licensed by the Department of State, Swift is able to deliver such quick results due to our long-standing relationships with foreign consulates and our precise attention to detail.
Swift has built lasting relationships with our corporate partners. Regardless of size, we treat every client with respect, honesty, and integrity. With Swift Passport Services, you can rest assured that your passport and visa needs will be handled efficiently and effectively.
