How to pay for US passport renewal

Post by marcharry »

Crazy issue. I sent a personal $USD check with my passport renewal by mail. The office responded with a form letter that they need a check or money order drawn on a "US Bank". On the phone the agent suggested that would be a bank headquartered in the US ??? i.e. not TD

There are virtually no US bank retail branches in Toronto - really.

I am waiting for a call back from a real agent not first line pretend agent. Maybe a money order from TD would have done it? Anyone know about this?

A bank draft issued by a Cdn bank is always drawn on a "US bank" -- a bank that they have affiliation with in US.

That is different than a check drawn on your US dollar Cdn account.

Any bank, any branch in Canada can do this.
I am taking my usual break from this site until May. Always too many tax-form specific questions at this time of year...
