Legal Passport does not issue Passports or Visas. The State Department’s Passport Agency has complete control over the issuing of US passports to US citizens. Each country issues all visas that are issued once the applicant meets the requirements and provides documentation as evidence. Legal Passport provides the latest information available from the Consulates; but visa requirements and government fees change without notice.
The US Passport Agencies and all foreign consulates have the right to request additional information and additional support documentation. We have no control over these requested additional requirements but will notify you promptly if your visa application is rejected, and we will let you know what new information you need to provide. Consulate fees, hence, are non-refundable.
The U.S. Passport Agency cannot issue a passport if you have any one of several issues. Please advise the agent if you have problems that will keep you from obtaining a passport.
- Criminal conviction
- Child support
- Criminal conviction or probation not completed
- Owing U.S. Government Money from loans received overseas, such as emergency repatriation funds.
- Any failure to meet the requirements.
SUSPENSE: At times, during the adjudication process the U.S. Government will place suspense on a passport application. Suspense cases occur when, after reviewing the application, the passport agency feels they need additional information. The most common, but not all, of the reasons are:
- Additional identification and/or documentation,
- Birth record issues,
- Routine name hold.
- Fraud issues
- Multiple lost passports.
The Adjudicator has the right to request any information they deem necessary to satisfy the requirements for a passport.
IF YOUR PASSPORT IS PLACED IN SUSPENSE, You need to act quickly to resolve the issue. THE U.S. Department of State will hold a suspense application active for ninety (90) days. If the problem is not resolved within that time period the application is considered TO BE ABANDONED. U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE DOES NOT REFUND APPLICATION FEES ONCE THE APPLICATION HAS BEEN SUBMITTED. It is important to note that once an application is placed in suspense under your name you must deal with the problem before any future passport can be issued. It is recommended that if you have any reason that you feel your application may place in suspense that you mention it to our company in advance so that you can fix the problem before the application is submitted.
