My 19-year-old son and I are going to Puerto Rico next Tuesday (that is, in 6 days) and I just found his passport and it EXPIRED on July 12th!!!!
I am reading that although he doesn't need a passport to go to Puerto Rico, he does need a valid, government-issued photo i.d. He does not have a driver's license or a government-issued i.d.! The only valid photo i.d. he has is his college i.d., and I'm reading that that's not official. We do have his birth certificate, but of course that's not a photo i.d.
AND we live in New York City but he is currently in Philadelphia, coming home on Sunday!
What on earth can we do? I have bought non-refundable plane tickets leaving Tuesday morning!
Should we find a reputable emergency passport renewal place in Philadelphia? Does anyone know of one? (except his passport is HERE). Can we find a reputable expediter in New York City -- except he is not here to have his pictures taken!
I guess he would have to come back here immediately to have this done?
Does anybody know of a valid and reliable expeditor, either here or in Philadelphia?
