Passports are vital for traveling outside the United States and its territories. Passports provide a certificate of American citizenship when abroad and serve as a form of internationally approved identification. Passports are traditionally applied for and obtained through the mail; however, when an American citizen desires a passport within less than two weeks, he or she will need to go to a passport office.
The Northeast has the highest number of passport offices of all other regions in America. Passport offices are found in Boston, Connecticut, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C.
