"It feels like if all of the United States had decided they are going to renew their passports and go someplace." - 'Everybody wants to travel' -Expediting the procedure can be costly. Alwadish charges $940 to get a passport ready in one day, while other firms can charge up to $2,500, he said. "But now the Covid is over, everybody wants to travel."
