An emergency passport is usually issued within 72 hours (3 business days) by the U.S department if required for life – or – death emergencies. This is when you have directly applied through the travel state gov internet sites.

If you paid the $60 fee for expedited service when you applied and you did not receive expedited service, you may be eligible to request a refund of this fee. We cannot refund any other passport fees or your travel expenses if you miss your trip.
- In order to issue an emergency passport (travel certificate), authorisation from the Department of Home Affairs in Pretoria, which is based on positive identification of the applicant's fingerprints, is required. As a result, the issuing of an emergency passport (travel certificate) may take up to 5 working days.
You can apply for an emergency travel document (sometimes called an 'emergency passport') if you're abroad, need to travel and cannot get a passport in time. If you're in the UK you should apply for a passport urgently.
Fortunately, the U.S. State Department and international U.S. Embassies can issue temporary or emergency passports. Even if you're traveling within 24 hours (last-minute business trip and your passport is expired?) a Passport Agency can help you get a passport in time for your departure.
Best way to apply for your passport
If you need to submit extra documents, the ten days processing time starts when we receive them. If you have already submitted a paper application, you cannot apply online. Passport Online is the fastest way to apply for or renew your passport.
If your passport doesn't arrive in time
Speak to your travel provider(s) to see if there's anything they can do. They might not be able to provide a refund, but you might be able to change the dates of your trip or offer credit vouchers to rebook.
You can apply online for a replacement passport. However this could take up to three weeks, which isn't very useful if you are heading on your trip before then. If you are looking to replace a lost or stolen passport (rather than renew one), you need to use a passport Fast Track Service. This takes around a week.
You can book an appointment up to 3 weeks in advance. If you need a passport to travel urgently for medical treatment or because a friend or family member is seriously ill or has died, call the 'Passport Adviceline' instead.
In most countries, you can travel anywhere within your nation's borders without a passport. The only exception is when you leave your home country to enter a foreign nation. However, even if you travel nationally, you will always need photo ID, such as a driver's license or National ID card to board a flight.
America's neighbors, including Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean islands, do not necessarily require one to carry a passport book or card. If you're planning on traveling by land or sea, usually a passport card will suffice, though it's recommended to have a book in the event of an emergency flight.
Answer: You need to call 1-877-487-2778 to possibly pay the 1 to 2 days delivery fee. Please note, however, that expedited service takes 5 to 7 weeks excluding the time it takes for the application to arrive at the processing center and for the passport to arrive at your door.
Getting a passport usually means a three week turnaround from when the Passport Office receives your application. But with the Passport Office being swamped by applications, the latest advice is to allow up to ten weeks for applications and renewals.
The Passport Office says applying online is usually quicker than by post and it also says that online applications coming through at the moment are still being processed within three weeks, but it's expected to take longer soon as the rate of applications increases.
The emergency passport is issued with a validity which is limited to the shortest time appropriate to the holder's travel requirements whilst taking account of the transit and destination country requirements (for example, many countries require travel documents to have a minimum validity of six months).
A temporary passport only allows you to travel to your destination country and any countries in between where you have to transit to reach your destination. If you need a temporary passport to return home, once you arrive, the immigration officers will take your passport.
Fortunately, you can obtain it as long as you go to the closest U.S. consulate or embassy. You will have to complete a few forms and show proof of your travel itinerary, but you may also have to file a police report if the document was stolen. Proof of citizenship and identity will also be required.
This usually takes between 1 and 3 working days. If you have not attached a scan or photo of your lost or stolen passport or ID card, the waiting time may be longer.
The short answer is “no,” at least not if you're traveling out of the country. An expired passport is simply not acceptable for international travel. If your passport is expired or is expiring within the next 6 months, you need to renew your passport.
