I am from Paraguay but work in the US and need to get my passport renewed as I plan on traveling for work sparingly over the next few months. Unfortunately the consulate where I need to get it renewed is a 6 hour train/car ride away. The consulate is only open M-F during regular business hours. Since I will need the passport for work (although I understand it is a personal document) and will have to miss work to get it renewed, is my employer responsible for paying me for the trip to get it? Or do I need to do this on my own time and take off work for the day to get it done?
