    I see this topic come up on the cruise boards I watch- seems that things are starting to speed up.

    It's too bad that the in person expediting isn't an option- we did that back in 2015 when we renewed, and it was really quick. There were no requirements back then to do it- nice pre-pandemic thing. Since you are in Boston, it should be easy to find an office near- if it helped.

    Anyway, expediting for cruisers is working.

    In Boston it’s the building next to the TD Garden.

    I think if you can show you are traveling to say Canada within like a week they will let you go much faster. I would look into doing something like that.

    From the State Department's website:

    Routine:8 to 11 weeks*

    Expedited: Costs an extra $60. Takes 5 to 7 weeks.*

    *Processing times begin the day we receive your application at a passport agency or center, not the day you mail your application or apply.

    Agency or Center: Must have international travel in the next 14 calendar days.
    Absolutely pay to expedite it if you might need it by the end of July, and still be prepared to have to go in person some place in July if you haven't gotten it back yet.

    We're planning a European trip for next fall (Sept. 2023) and we're planning to get the passports renewed now to not have to sweat it.

    The normal process takes weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks. And then sometimes it takes a mere few days. It's ridiculous and has been for years.

    Getting it renewed within 6 weeks will likely be a tall order even if you expedite it.

    started a topic Passports

    Passports

    I need to renew my passport. I meet all the requirements to renew by mail. I'm hoping to get a new picture taken today. Do any of you know how long it takes to renew by mail? I'm trying to decide if I need to pay to expedite the process. There's a slim chance I need to travel to London at the end of July for work.
