2. Go Through the Government, Don’t Fall For the Scams
So you realize your passport is out of date and you do a frantic Google search only to discover that (hurray!) there are companies out there willing to rush your paperwork through the proper channels.

In other words, just do the work yourself and it’s both cheaper and less time consuming.
