New App Lets Travelers Renew Passports on a Smart Phone

by Anna Gleksman

ItsEasy.com has issued what it calls the industry’s first passport-renewal app.

The app lets users both fill out the application and take a passport photo, which are then reviewed by qualified ItsEasy passport professionals.

ItsEasy.com charges $29.95 on top of the U.S. State Department's passport fee for each application. The price includes a trackable priority U.S. Postal Service shipping label, the correct forms and photos, and order status updates.

The State Department expects to have approximately 36 million passport renewals by 2017—an unprecedented amount.
