RENEW YOUR PASSPORT TO ADVENTURE WITH A PASSPORT WALLET

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“Hey, fella. This could be you. All you need is a sharp Passport Wallet from Gallantry. “

TRAVELING IS BACK!

Oh yeah! People are definitely getting excited to travel again (big time), eagerly whipping out the plastic and/or the crypto to book some fun 2022 trips. You know what that means, right? It means, at least for a lot of folks, renewing that dusty passport.

Maybe it expired before the pandemic. Maybe it expired last week. Either way, if you’re looking to make moves abroad in the near future, the clock is ticking!

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“Ladies, ladies. Relax. Of course I learned how to renew my passport from Gallantry.”

Good news. You, fellow Gallantry Man, are in luck. As always, we’ve got your back here at Gallantry. That means we’re walk you through how to renew your passport if it’s renew passport time so that you can finally show the rest of the world that the Gallantry Man doesn’t play games when it comes to literally having the freshest, sharpest, and most efficient EDC in the history of mankind (and, yes, that means today we will also be talking about the Passport Wallet ).

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“I know, baby. I’m a Gallantry Man and this fact makes me irresistible. I get it.”

HOW TO RENEW YOUR PASSPORT

A passport isn’t just a legal document that is recognized around the world. It’s your ticket to the world. Unlike domestic travel, which merely requires state identification, international travel requires this bad boy. Yup, the passport is a real door opener (at least, in the figurative sense).

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“Of course we’re going to celebrate the fact that Gallantry reminded me to renew my passport before hooking me up with the freshest Passport Wallet ever! Of course!”

Gallantry Men are definitely prone to having an Indiana Jones love of adventure (sorry we’re not sorry) so it’s no wonder that the U.S. Department of State is backed up the wazoo in the passport-processing department (they’re currently recommending new applicants apply at least six months before embarking on international journeys). If your passport is at least a decade old, you’ve changed your name Prince-style, or your old passport is lost or stolen, yeah, you’re definitely going to need to renew that puppy. If you have your passport in your possession, it’s undamaged other than the normal wear and tear, it was issued when you were age 16 or older, it was issued in the last 15 years, and it was issued in your current name (or you can document your name change), you’re golden when it comes to renewing your U.S. Passport by mail. If your circumstances are different, you will have to apply to renew your passport in person (learn more about that right HERE ).

Believe it or not, some countries may even refuse you entry if you have less than six months left on your passport, so this is not an area that you want to roll the dice with. Thankfully, however, renewing (again, if you’re eligible) is a much simpler process than applying for your very first passport (hey, you don’t even need to physically go to a passport office).

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“Are these the copies of Gallantry’s Passport Renewal article that I asked for? Huh? Because they don’t look like it!”

The stress-free steps to getting your most critical travel document are as follows:

1. FILL OUT YOUR RENEWAL APPLICATION ONLINE

Grab your most recent passport book, have your Social Security number nearby, make sure you have access to a printer and Adobe Acrobat Reader, and fill out your DS-82 Renewal Application HERE.

If you merely lost your passport, but you still have years left before you need to renew it, fill out your DS-5504 replacement form online HERE.

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“This check might be phony, but hot diggity damn that dude has a sharp-looking Pioneer Carry Passport Wallet. It must be from Gallantry. It has to be.”

2. CALCULATE YOUR COSTS

Grab your personal checkbook or make money order preparations in order to figure out how much this undertaking will cost you. A passport book costs $110, a passport card costs $30, and a passport book/card combo will cost you $140.

Once you know how much you owe (based on what you want), you can make checks or money orders payable to “U.S. Department of State.” Make sure you have your full name as well as your date of birth on the front of your check or money order.

Routine processing time is about 8 to 11 weeks, so, if you’re really in a rush, you can get expedited service (5-7 weeks) for an additional $60 (learn more about that HERE ).

Lastly, if you’re really, really, really in a rush (like the next 72 hours kind)? Make an appointment at the closest Agency or Center.

3. PRINT YOUR APPLICATION & STAPLE YOUR PASSPORT PHOTO TO IT

Once you’ve filled out your renewal application (it’s the same one you’d fill out if your passport got lost or stolen), you’ll need to print it out and carefully staple (4 staples, one in each corner to be exact, see the instructions below) an unbent passport photo (learn more HERE ) to it vertically as such:

4. TOSS (OR SLOWLY PLACE) EVERYTHING IN A LARGE ENVELOPE

Gather up your printed application form with your passport photo attached and toss (or gently place, whatever makes you comfortable) these items in a large envelope along with your most recent passport.

5. MAIL THAT PACKAGE

Mail your completed application, including your most recent passport, name change document (if applicable), photo, and fees, to one of the following addresses based on where you live and how fast you want that new passport.

If you live in the United States, you have to use the United States Postal Service (USPS) to mail your renewal application and supporting documents.

Live in California, Florida, Illinois, Minnesota, New York, or Texas? Mail your bundle here:

National Passport Processing Center
Post Office Box 640155
Irving, TX 75064-0155

Live in any other state or Canada? Mail your bundle here:

National Passport Processing Center
Post Office Box 90155
Philadelphia, PA 19190-0155

Did you write a check or place a money order for expedited service? Write "EXPEDITE" on the outside of your mailing envelope and send that bad boy here:

National Passport Processing Center
Post Office Box 90955
Philadelphia, PA 19190-0955

6. KEEP TABS ON YOUR APPLICATION STATUS

You can check your application status using the Online Passport Status System HERE.

Remember, it may take up to two weeks before your application begins to get processed in the system. In other words, if you’re eyeing travel sooner rather than later, it’s chop-chop time.

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“Look, just tell me where you got that handsome Pioneer Carry Passport Wallet in three different gorgeous colors and I’ll drop this whole thing. Does that work for you?”

WHICH COUNTRIES ACCEPT A U.S. PASSPORT?

At the moment, more than 100 countries are currently allowing U.S. citizens to visit (with some restrictions) with a passport.

Check to see if your destination is on the list right HERE at U.S. News & World Report.

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“I already checked the spot Gallantry recommended to see if the countries we’re going to accept a U.S. Passport and if I need a visa (or not). Don’t you ladies worry about it!”

WHERE DO YOU NEED A VISA?

Depending on where you’re headed abroad, you may need a visa issued by the embassy of the country you wish to visit. To see if your next international destination requires a visa, look up your destination right HERE (you will also find the address and phone number of the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate, which you should have on your person in case of an emergency).

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“I saw you with your new Passport Wallet from Pioneer Carry out there. Looks pretty good. It must be from Gallantry.”

Remember, every country is different. You’re a Gallantry Man, so we know you’re always prepared. Nevertheless, it’s definitely important to pay attention to your destination’s entry/exit requirements, local laws and customs, health conditions, and any other pertinent information or details that may be of interest or concern to you.

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“Show me your Pioneer Carry Passport Wallet again, Gallantry Man! Please!”

THE PASSPORT WALLET FROM PIONEER CARRY

Now that you’re covered on the U.S. passport renewal front, you’re ready for the main event. No, no. We’re not talking about your actual trip. That’s adorable. No, we’re talking about your new PASSPORT WALLET!

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“Damn, that’s a good-looking Pioneer Carry Passport Wallet. I could look at all this fresh EDC I ordered from Gallantry all day.”

A passport wallet isn’t just an everyday carry accessory where you can store your plane ticket, renewed passport, cash, cards, state-issued identification, and vaccine record. Hardly. It’s a timesaving mechanism designed to alleviate any and all potential travel stress by keeping you so organized that the unorganized around you won’t know what to do with themselves.

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“I noticed you gals don’t even notice me. Is it because I forgot to get my passport renewed even though Gallantry reminded me? Is it because I wasn’t able to get my hands on a proper Pioneer Carry Passport Wallet? Is it both? Hello?”

You know what they say. You can’t put a price on having peace of mind. You know what else you can’t put a price on (even though, technically, there is a price)? Having the sharpest Passport Wallet ever built.

Renew Your Passport To Adventure With A Passport Wallet 20211206 Catch Me If You Can Movie“We have to get to access to Gallantry so we can get Pioneer Carry Passport Wallets before they’re all sold out!”
