In a stunning update to my passport photo thread, my replacement passport has arrived

Passport agency listed my application as received 25 April (put in mail 13 April). Received my passport back today 14 June. Did not pay for expedited service, but I did mention 15 June as the departure date for an international trip (plans have since changed to a later summer trip instead, due to passports not being expected back in time). 62 days, door-to-door. Under 9 weeks. Not too shabby given the 10-13 week estimate.

This might have to be moved to the other side, because some people might feel compelled to state obvious things like, "Good people in the Federal Government do work to protect and provide for the well being of US citizens' needs."

No doubt they are triaging and prioritizing passports based on stated travel plans. That's what any well operated entity would/should do!

I think the lead time estimates tend to be based on worst-case scenarios anyways. I've heard of a number of instances where turnaround has been much shorter than the stated lead time.



It is what it is.

We weren't as smart as you this time...... as we sent in Mrs. Buzz's passport renewal just a few days before you sent in yours; but w/ her real, mid-September travel plans. Nothing has showed up yet. This was her first renewal on her own, as before she retired during Covid, she had been a flight attendant for 43+ years, and her airline handled all her renewals.... w/ super-expedited speed, as no international flights while passports are being processed. Used to be about a week to ten days, tops. Based on your results, hers oughta show up between Labor Day and California Admission Day this time.....

Congrats on your success.

They have come through for me twice. And remember, it's almost always our fault for waiting!



Hurts like a bastid...
