For business travelers, one way to present proof of travel plans is to present a company letter to expedite your passport. This letter will explain that you require a passport for business travel, and will state the details of this trip.
Details Needed on the Company Letter for Passport Applications
The company letter you submit to expedite your passport must have the following details and qualities.
- State the country you will visit
- On company letterhead
- Signed by a representative of the company other than you
- Specify a departure date within the next 14 days (this might be a tentative trip, but a specific date must be recorded)
- Include your name and job title
