Re: Has anyone up-dated thier U.S. passport lately?

I went to the passport office and got it in a few hours. I'm told it takes ten days (ish) through the mail.

Re: Has anyone up-dated thier U.S. passport lately?

Last week there was a lady set up with a table in the lobby of the post office helping people with passports. There was a line of Mexicans all the way out to the parking lot for some reason!:confused:

Re: Has anyone up-dated thier U.S. passport lately?

I did mine in March/April. I had to send everything to Philadelphia from Wyoming because we don't have the offices here to do it locally. They said it would take 4-6 weeks.

I filled out the form, included 2 pictures, my old passport, and enclosed a check in the amount the form stated was required. About 2 weeks went by and it all came back to me kind of shoved into in a big envelope with a letter saying that the price had gone up $8 in between the time I'd gotten the form and when I'd mailed everything in. :rolleyes:

So, I went back to the court house, got the new form, filled it all out again, wrote a new check, and mailed everything off. About 3 weeks went by and my new passport arrived. The old one came in the mail the next day, voided, and ready for the junk box for keepsakes. Only the US Government would waste the extra time, effort, and money to ship 2 packages instead of sending it all in one. :noway:

I'm just glad it is something you only have to do every 10 years.

Just got new ones for my three kids. Did it at the post office in Aransas Pass, Texas. Got them back in the mail 7 days later...

Re: Has anyone up-dated thier U.S. passport lately?

I applied for a new passport (my old one had expired) for a business trip that was going to take me outside the country. I decided to get my kids their passports at the same time since they would probably need them with all the new regulations. Because mine was for work, I expedited (paid the extra $40) mine, and just let the kid's go the normal route. Needless to say, I was pretty ticked off when my kid's passports showed up before mine! My advice, don't waste your money on the "expedited" service unless you are really in a bind for time and think the passport office will actually push your application through the system any faster.

I'm curious too...mine expires in Nov and I know I'll need it a few times before then. Can't afford to have it tied up.

Don't want foreigners in our country & I don't want to go to theirs, so I don't have one.

You live in International Falls, MN and have never been to Canada?? :confused:
FYI...Any plans to do so in the future will require a passport.

Yea I've been there but if I don't get a passport I won't have to go again.
Never have spent much time over there, hockey game once in awhile that's enough for me.
If I had a DUI I really wouldn't have to go to Canada, because they won't let you in then.
