If you could do it quickly, and get your KYC in with it, that would be good.  Passports are requested because these programs are international, and BIIP participants identify themselves that way.  It is required to have a current passport in private trading.  No other form of ID will work.  You will have to get a new passport.  It can be done quickly.  You don’t have to go through the post office, which is slow.  As you may know, there are private passport agencies you can find.  For an extra fee of usually a couple hundred dollars, they will expedite it for you.  You can probably get it in a few days. ​
