Select the Processing Time to Expedite your IDP
Are you preparing for a trip and is deciding if you should get an International Driving Permit (IDP)? If your trip includes driving, then you should get an IDP.
If you are not familiar with the concept, it is straightforward when it comes to driving. An IDP is a multiple-language document that shows proof you have a valid driver’s license. You must keep in mind that driving in a country other than the U.S. can become challenging if you don’t know the rules.
There are 150 countries that accept an IDP as a form of identification. So, if you are in one of these countries and you are stopped by an officer, an IDP will help in many ways.
To get an IDP, you must apply for one. The process is not difficult nor requires many documents. However, you must have a valid driver’s license when you apply. Otherwise, your application will be denied.
To apply, you must submit these documents to Visa Expeditors, and we will do the rest. Submit:
If you submit these papers by mail, expect a longer processing time than if you deliver them in person.
There are many reasons to get an IDP, but the most important one is to have it if you will drive in a foreign country. Each country has its laws, and if you are not familiar with them, it is best to prepare yourself in case something happens.
Another reason is to avoid paying for a translation of your driver’s license. A translation is more expensive than the IDP. So, it is cheaper to get this document than presenting your driver’s license to someone who is not familiar with it.
Visa Expeditors can get an IDP in two business days for you when you apply in person. If you mail in your documents and use regular posting, you can expect your IDP in 6-8 days. The IDP is valid for one year and cannot be renewed. If you need another, you must reapply and pay the fees.
The cost of an IDP will include our service and the application fee. Our service fee is $70, and the application fee is $20. Therefore, the price you will pay is $90 for your International Driving Permit.
