You get an email about an amazing trip aboard that is a fantastic bargain. However If you don't have a valid passport, you can forget those one-on-a-lifetime trips. It’s hard to remember to renew your passport until it’s too late—and even if you do remember, it can be a pretty time-consuming process.  The good news is there is the Mobile Passport app that now let's you begin the passport renewal process.  The app will send you a push notification six months before your passport expires, and then it’ll give you explicit instructions for renewing it. You can even expedite your renewal in as little as 24 hours, though you will have to pay a fee depending on how fast you need it—and you will still have to physically mail in application forms and a new photo. In addition to renewing your passport, the Mobile Passport app lets you submit your passport and declaration information to U.S. Customs and Border Protection via your phone instead of using the traditional paper form, and lets you skip the interview process. It also gives you access to designated customs lines around the country. It's free for Apple on Android phones.
