I applied in person on June 11, 2021 (San Antonio, TX) and received my passport on July 16, 2021. I paid with a money order instead of a personal check, and my passport was processed in Charleston, SC. Application to receipt was a total of 35 days.
June 11 – Application (San Antonio, TX)
June 17 – Processing
July 14 – Approved, Shipped
July 16 – Received (Austin, TX)
A couple more details: I am an adult, and this is my first passport, not a renewal. I did pay for expedited service but I did not pay for the upgraded shipping, and it still arrived in 2 days.
Hope this helps!
