Customer Question

My 16 yr old grandson is planning to travel to Mex with his parents who are leaving tomorrow a.m. His passport expires June 2, while they plan to be gone. Is there anything they can do to be able to take him with them & not leave him behind? XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Hello, and welcome!

My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you today.

If your grandson's passport will expire while he is in Mexico, he can apply to renew his passport as an emergency situation, at any American Embassy or Consulate, there. It would be a good idea to have his original birth certificate with him and a government issued photo ID, if he has one, as proof if identity, although he will also have the expired passport. You don't mention how long they will be away, but since there is no time to renew his current passport before leaving for Mexico, this would be an option--renewing the passport at U.S. Embassy or Consulate in Mexico. However, this might be a 'temporary' renewal, and he would need to renew his passport in the conventional way, once returning to the U.S. You can see more information HERE

I hope this helped and he is able to accompany his parents when they leave tomorrow.

Please be so kind as to rate with positive feedback so I receive credit for my assistance. Thank you!

Warmest wishes,
Cher

Thank you, Cher. They are on their way to O'Hare now to speak with TSA. It gives us hope & they have all the documents you mentioned. Consulate is supposedly close to the airport. Thank you again. Hoping for the best?
