    A two week turn-around from a Federal agency is fantastic. They clearly have it figured out.

    We had the same experience, but I would never cut it that close, if I really needed it.

    We also got our teens who had to go into the passport office that fast. We had ordered new passports and passport cards as 2 forms of ID...couldn't believe the prices. I think for the 4 of us it cost upwards of 600.00...( the id card added $$$$ to the total). Fast, yes , PRICEY even a bigger YES...

    No, we wanted them to carry with us when traveling in Europe. Easy fit in the pocket or wallet that hangs down your shirt. I know they are good in carribean and US as an acceptable form or ID, but not to travel with alone in Europe. I guess, its just a handy size that drew us to them.
