Remember back in 2007 when the new U.S. law went into effect that required U.S. citizens to use a passport to visit Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda? Nearly 18 million passports were issued that year alone, and since passports are good for 10 years, all of those will soon be up for renewal. In fact, nearly 49 million passports are set to expire within the next three years, so the U.S. State Department expects a huge flood of renewal requests. Will yours be one of them? Streamline the process by downloading ItsEasy, the first passport renewal app for iOS and Android.
The app includes passport and visa-renewal expediting services (fees start at $89), the ability to take passport photos with your phone, which can be printed out and shipped to you or digitally added to your application, visa requirement information, and emergency services for those who have lost travel documents. There’s even a reminder feature that will alert you nine months before your passport is due to expire. Just don’t forget to stop into Garmany to stock up on the latest styles before your overseas sojourn.
