    Quick Processing with International Passport Visas

    There are few people who painlessly endure the process of applying for, renewing or replacing a passport. For those who would decline a free trip abroad to avoid the hassle that comes with the passport process, there is an alternative.
    In business since 1981, International Passport Visas offers a quick and convenient solution to the often slow process of anything regarding international documents like passports and visas. The company’s founder, Ray Priest, began expediting documents as a means of paying his way through graduate school before launching the company. His wife, Janna Priest, has also made a considerable contribution to the company and its current direction in the marketplace.
    “Her vision and self-reliance has led to changes none of us thought possible,” said Ray Priest.
    International Passport Visas is also one of the few passport and visa expediters that are recognized and registered with four federal agencies, including the US State Department and Homeland Security. With these relationships, the company is able to expedite an unlimited number of US passports all issued within 24 hours of when submitted, while other companies are limited to 15-20 expeditions per day. All approved passport requests are issued in 24 hours of when they are given to the State Department for issuance.
    “Our industry is very demanding, it insists almost instantaneous issuance of passports and visas, but expects these services to be done at reasonable prices,” said Priest. “We are proud to say that we are one of few companies who have married these concepts together and provide incredible services at a very reasonable cost.”
    In the near future, Priest anticipates opening a larger office in Dallas, Texas along with a few in processing cities like New York City and San Francisco. Eventually, he hopes to pass the family business down to his younger son, Roland, to lead and develop the company as it makes its way into the future world.
    “Much of my time is devoted to work right now, but I hope to soon bring my family together to spend time abroad ourselves,” said Priest.
