I'm planning a trip to Ontario, Canada from Alabama in the US and intend to drive across the border and stay with a family. I absolutely need to leave on the 20th of this month. The passport agency closest to me is in Atlanta. I have a appointment scheduled on the 7th of this month.
I'm required to provide proof of travel, but I'm not flying OR staying in a hotel OR going on company business. Is it still possible to get a passport expedited, and will a letter from the family I'm staying with help?
Any insight to how I can effectively get a passport quickly under these circumstances is appreciated.
Edit: I just found out about Passport Cards. Is this quicker/easier to get than a full blown passport book since I won't be flying internationally?
