    Question: My passport has been expired for 5 years, I need to get to the UK for a bereavement. Where do I go for an emergency renewal? I have an airline ticket and the name of a funeral home in the UK for proof. Thank you.

    I have just forgotten to renew it. I have been very busy with my work. My grandmother just passed away and I would like to be there at the funeral. I am heartsick that my passport is expired. Please help me.

    Please email me where to go or what to do. I live in Ventura County, Ventura and am a naturalized citizen from the UK. My passport was issued to me in London a little less than 15 years ago in December. I am so sorry that it expired, I am so mad at myself, but what is done is done and I want to be with my family in the UK. I will be glad to receive a call regarding this.

    The funeral is set for sometime February 25-26. I can provide information about the name of the funeral home or director's name. I will have an airline ticket also as proof. Please tell me I can get my passport updated or issued for this UK visit. Thank you so much.

    I am very hopeful that I can get a renewal in this emergency situation. Please email me what I can do. Thank you so much.

    COVID-19 UPDATE: Mailing delays are impacting passport processing. The Department of State's processing times begin when applications are received at a passport agency or center and not when you mail them or apply at a local acceptance facility. Standard service may take between 8 and 11 weeks. This timeframe does not include delivery time. Mailing times vary across the country.

    Expedited service takes from 5 to 7 weeks exluding mailing times on the front and back end. Mailing delays may be significant so requesting 1-2-day mailing may greatly help.
