Can getting a passport help you find your soulmate? Sounds bizarre, doesn’t it? Not to Air New Zealand! They’re currently offering $200 off to single travelers who book a ticket on their “Matchmaking Flight.” The flight leaves from Los Angeles on October 13, 2009. A plane full of single people will fly to Auckland, New Zealand to attend a “Matchmaking Ball” held 3 nights later, which should give you just enough time to shake off your jet lag.

You’ll also get to rub elbows with a couple of reality TV stars-Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney of “The Bachelor.” Or, if fancy balls aren’t your thing, check out their Adventure and Cultural Matchmaking Packages. Perhaps the person of your dreams is waiting for you in New Zealand’s lush mountains! You can book your flight here-make sure to enter the appropriate promo code depending on the package you want.

Also, make sure you apply for your passport well in advance-getting a passport can be time-consuming, and you can’t go to New Zealand without one. Getting a passport with normal processing takes at least 6 weeks. Even if you request the government’s expedited processing when you apply, it could still take at least 3 weeks.

If you can’t wait that long, a private passport expediting company can make getting a passport easier and faster. You’ll get easy-to-understand instructions to help you fill out the necessary paperwork, and you’re application could be processed in as little as 24 hours!
