Here is a quick break down from beginning to end for an adult renewal for my wife and I. keep in mind we payed for both expedited service and 1-2 day shipping.
-July 22nd we shipped all documentation and money order to Philadelphia expedited agency from California. if possible pay the extra money to have it delivered in three days and follow shipment with tracking number.
-July 26th both of documentation was received at passport agency.
-July 28th both of our applications showed in process.
-August 24th both applications were approved.
-August 25th both applications were shipped.
-August 26th both applications in transit for delivery to our house.
from beginning to end it took 24 business days to get our passport back and that was with paying for expedited fees and 1-2 day shipping. If you have any questions feel free to ask and I hope ill have an answer for you. I was a bit stressed that we were not going to get them on time as we have a trip to Cancun in mid September. I hope this post gives some of you piece of mind.
