The fastest is to simply take it to your nearest Passport Office which is usually located in a Federal Building. You can pay extra for same day service.

That place must make money hand over fist. Wow, $100-150. I'd never use them unless there was absolutely no federal building where I lived. Then again I guess not everyone lives in a major city where there is a building.

I could not find my passport the last trip to the island, leaving the next day. Went to the State Dept. office in the Federal Bldg. in Houston. Filled out all their forms, attached photos, had to return at 3:00 pm to pick it up..... NO FREAKING WAY! They did not read one of the forms that stated the PPwas lost. Charged me another $50.00 to pull it up on their computer, I even had th PP number. Total cost? $225.00. I am so proud of our Federal Employees, the one I was stuck with had a terrible attitude AND BAD BREATH!

I never said I used it, I haven't had to, but I know others have. It worked well for them smile

I only hope KC gets her passport in time.

If worse comes to worse...I've never tried/used this method but my mom knows someone who has and he had no problem. When you get to the airport tell them you forgot your passport. (Which he actually had done) They should have some forms for you to fill out that will declare that you are an US citizen and be allowable to substitute your passport and they will then notarize it and the cost at least back then was around $25.
Of course this was before 9/11 but it's a thought and I don't know if every airport has this but....
