    Passport News

    Hoping I am in the right thread but if not feel free to move it. My husband and I decided to renew our passports before our trip to Aruba at the end of October - they were due to expire at the end of November and didn’t want to chance that JB agents would give us a hard time because we didn’t have 6 mos left. Anyhow we mailed our applications on June 11th and then waited to see the checks clear- took just over a month. If counting up to 14 weeks( as people were reporting it could take this long) we were cutting it super close. We kept questioning ourselves as to why we renewed… Well I am happy to report that when I got home from work today our new passports were here!! So all in it took 7 weeks from the day we mailed them- so happy that I don’t have to stress over the passports!!

    Great news! Sounds like you are one of the lucky ones. I’m guessing the congressional offices are getting overloaded with requests for help because this article talks about an 18 week backlog and a proposed bill in the house to do something about it. https://thehill.com/homenews/adminis...ssport-backlog
    The best trip is the next trip. Anxiously waiting to book something.

    Jayna did you pay for the expedited or just go the regular route?

    Wow, That is great news...My one niece and her husband and youngest son are coming with us in November. They sent for their passports about 3 weeks ago. We are worried they may not get them back in time but you have given me hope.....
    If not, we will be scheduling a trip to Buffalo to get them before the trip. Problem is we have to wait till like 3 days before our trip and I worry that if we do have to go that route we won't get an appointment in time .....fingers and toes crossed!!!

    You are lucky! We mailed ours the 29 of April and they arrived May 1 in Philadelphia. It took until June 9th to get into the system. It still says processing. I have reached out to our congressman's office and filed the paperwork with them this week.

    My daughter, her son and boyfriend are going with us next April. They applied the end of May and got theirs last week, so it took about 7 or 8 weeks.
