    Out of curiousity was it a new passport or a renewal?How long did you wait?
    I just sent mine and my wifes in for renewal by mail today and the postmaster told me to expect it sometime early next year!LOL.
    I guess since you have to include your passport with the renewal paperwork i wont be fishing out of anywhere that requires a passport this year.

    I've heard if you call the landings they can provide a request to expedite your passport, just say your going on a trip into mexican waters and you can get it within a couple days. I've never done it, but have heard it a couple times from different sources while on overnight trips.

    She said even if you do the expedited thing for 60 bucks more its at least 16-18 weeks right now due to covid.She said you can do it in person a few places but expect LONG lines,Also said alot of scammers are charging people for expedited service but its the same as sending it in expedited yourself.
    Not sure about any of this,just repeating what the postmaster told me.

    It was a renewal application sent 5 weeks ago. I hear the wait is getting longer and longer. I feel lucky I'm able to fly down . Long drive down there. 800 miles. Longer drive back home all burt out.

    Went in for renewal today, was told to expect up to 18 weeks. 12 weeks if you want to pay extra and expedite the request. Let's hope it takes less, as mentioned in the post above.

    Mine expired and 3 months ago I got new ones for my whole fam of 5 along with 2 cards for adults in 5-6 weeks. Hassle free. Go online and you can make reservations at local post office. Very easy.

    Lining up is for the birds! Or those who can't plan ahead.
    It was my fault it expired I just wasnt paying attention but luckily i could still just renew by sending the forms with the passports and new pictures.

    The wife and I sent in our passports to get renewed in May and it took 12 weeks just like the website says. But we got them. Oh yeah we did not expedite.
    Funny thing our friends who have never had a passport ever applied and got them in 3 weeks! BS!!!
