They are not concerned - no border when exiting the US. Most flights to Israel leave from the same area as domestic flights.

If you need an expedited appointment call l 1-877-487-2778 at 8 AM SHARP EST. Press 1 1 2 2 to speak to a live rep to schedule you an expedited appointment.

Every night new appointments become available. If you call later you'll wait on hold for an hour+ and most likely not get an appointment.

That ripoff business is finished. Online appointments are not available anymore. Since some abusers had BOTS booking all in-person appointments for expedited passports instantly when they got available -once in 24 hours- and resold them for top dollar. Thankfully the state caught on and took down online appointments. Now you can only book by phone with a unique pin number and your last name.

Call in the morning and get your passport appointment.

Temporary Removal of the Online Passport Appointment System

We have temporarily removed the online last-minute appointment booking system to ensure our very limited, last-minute in-person passport appointments at one of our agencies or centers go to applicants who need them for urgent travel.

Currently, the only way to schedule an appointment is to call the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778 (TDD/TTY 1-888-874-7793) from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday. One of our customer service representatives will help you book an appointment at the nearest passport agency or center that has availability. Our appointment line is closed on the weekend and on federal holidays.

Why did we make this change? We made this change to address the problem of third parties booking all available appointments using bots, and then selling them to applicants with urgent travel needs.

MY OWN EXPERIENCE!!!!

I was up a few nights trying to book an appointment at 5 am est. After some research, I figured out that that was the time when new appointments were automatically generated. I had a war with bots freezing the site for 2 minutes. I was trying to grab new appointments. It was impossible! I clicked on an available appointment and when I clicked confirm it was too late. It was booked by a bot already.

ALL APPOINTMENTS WERE GONE WITHIN 1 OR 2 MINUTES. Nothing became available for the next 24 hours and then it happened again at 5 am....

I have an 18 year old son that does not have a valid passport or driver's license.  He would like to fly DOMESTICALLY in around two months.  I can't even make an appointment with the county clerk to submit a passport application for a month and a half, way too close for even expedited to come back on time.

Is there any solution?  I don't even see how he can make an emergency appointment since he is flying domestic.  But without ID he can't fly domestic.

Thanks for your help,

Where are you?  Every state offers some kind of official ID for non-drivers.  Here are the instructions for NY:

If you need help getting an expedited appointment at the NY DMV, please PM me.
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

Need to renew a passport, current expedited by mail is 12 weeks! wondering if the current need for Afghan visas will pull resources from passport renewal and make the time even longer, or it's a totally different process.

For Ukraine the passport must be valid at time of entry and exit.
https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/International-Travel-Country-Information-Pages/Ukraine.html

So since the maximum stay without a visa is 90 days, its ok if its valid for 3 months after entry.

What happens if I have a stopover in a country that requires 6 months would that be an issue? Or since I'm going to Ukraine that does not require 6 months I should be fine?
