Last minute vacation plans? It can be tempting to book that European getaway or cruise to the Bahamas when a last second deal pops up, but what about securing a passport? Now thanks to a FedEx passport service you can get your passport in just one day.

FedEx has partnered with RushMyPassport to offer an expedited passport service. At any of FedEx’s 2,000 locations nationwide or online you can update passport photos, rush new passports or renewals, get children’s’ passports and replace lost, stolen or damaged passport all in just 24 hours. Meanwhile to process a new passport or passport renewal through the standard process can take six to eight weeks.

Of course you’ll pay extra for bypassing that wait time. FedEx charges $449 to process the passport in 24 hours. In addition, you’ll need to pay for rushed shipping, which could cost as much as $180, and the $170 federal government fee. Altogether you’re looking at nearly $800 for the whole thing, but if you’re in a bind, it could be worth it.

“Routine passport processing can take weeks, which can mean the difference between enjoying that dream vacation you’ve spent months planning or canceling it,” Mosie Miller, CEO of RushMyPassport, said in a statement. “You also have to factor in the possibility of issues with documents you finally receive in the mail, causing further delays and even more headaches. The combined service offering of RushMyPassport and FedEx Office helps travelers overcome these issues, giving a smooth and secure way to handle passport needs.”
