Help!! My bestfriend is doing two months abroad and was trying to fly into turkey when they told her she couldn't because her passport expired within three months.

She went to the US Embassay in Athens knowing she had a month left of traveling, and gave her an emergency passport and punched holes in her exsisting one. Now no country will let her in with her emergency passport.

Can her mom get her a passport in the US and ship it to her? Is there anyway around this?

Thank you!!

I know it’s not helpful now but never ever ever fly internationally when your passport is within 4-5 months of expiring. If she was trying to leave the US now she wouldn’t be allowed to board the flight.
I am not an expert but her mom can most likely get her a passport in the US and ship it if she can supply your friend’s personal information. Keep the same picture and basically “renew” it. But it’s a somewhat lengthy process until she’d have it in her hands

I got anxiety from reading this, I hope you get this figured out. I would think you should be able to but you’re running the risk of it being lost?

Check with the embassy again. Her mom should reach out to the State Department to make sure all the compliance is met. At this time it might be better to just cut the trip short and go back to the US.

Oh, wow. This is also stressing me out. I have no idea because I haven't personally experienced this. What I would do though is to go to the embassy office and ask for assistance.
