Was passport required for your surgery? Can't schedule b/c passport office is closed!



Recommended Posts

I am still researching doctors and the one that I want to schedule with requires a passport (mine expired this week!) and the passport office is closed in Seattle. There are two doctors I am researching that do not require one, but one has a very negative review on this site and the other has no recent reviews (Dr. Pedro Kuri) who seems a bit old and may not be recently certified.

Any recommendations for surgeons who will take an enhanced driver's license from Washington State??

Yes, passport is required with all doctors, they need to make sure your real, serious and after the surgery you will make it back home with no problems. You can not travel back home from Mexico into the US with a US driver's license. You must have a valid US passport or a valid passport card.

I renewed mine (a year or so ago) by mail. Not everyone is eligible to do this, but many are - just google "renewing passport by mail" or "renewing passport online" to see if you can do it.

You don't need to go to a passport office, you can always apply for a new passport through a participating post office. However, it will take 6 to 8 weeks to get it.
