What’s the Deal with US Passports?

Back in May of 2021, and most recently in March of 2022, U.S. Customs and Border Protection issued guidance to U.S. citizens permitting their use of expired U.S. passports. U.S. citizens have been allowed to use their passport that expired on or after January 1, 2020, to return to the U.S. This temporary form of relief was put into action in response to the significantly lengthy waiting period to renew a U.S. passport from abroad. It sought to lessen travel difficulties created by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, this policy has now come to a halt, as of June 30, 2022.
