We are doing several and are located near DC. An adult renewal, two minor renewals, and a new minor (toddler). All applications turned in at the post office Jan 11th, and
In Process on Jan 19th (the postal worker said something about they go up in bundles and we had just missed the one for that week). So far, all are still
In Process. Weirdly, they send a status email out on Feb 4 to announce that they had gotten the applications Jan 19, seems a bit late for that.
Our trip is early April (temporary work relocation), and the 10-12 week thing on the passport site has us spooked as 10 weeks would put passports in our hand the day before our flight. Good to know people have gotten them much faster and that expediting after the fact is both possible and so fast. I’ll report back with what happens, but we’re going to chicken out and expedite March 8th if we don’t have an update.
