Passport applications and Passport Renewal
« on: April 07, 2020, 07:42:21 AM »
I submitted my passport for renewal end of January or early Feb for renewal, before this pandemic hit us.
Is it safe to say I wing get my new passport until this pandemic is over?

Thanks for that. My application still says in process

"The U.S. Department of State has received your application for your passport book on 02/24/2020. We're now reviewing your application and supporting documents.

You requested routine service when you applied, which we are currently processing in 6-8 weeks."

Can you check the link and see which day they received your application?

Anyone have a status date around this time? Still have not received my passport.

Similar question. Would like to travel internationally as soon as allowed. I just realized my passport expired February. Does it make sense to try to renew now or just wait until they resume normal operations?

I renewed my daughter's passport today. I was told that the (State department's) passport processing offices are closed. I should not expect the passport before 10 weeks.

How long does it take under normal circumstances?

We also received this message for my husband's passport, which has been in process since early March. We're presuming that he won't get it for another 6-8 weeks.

So, our [minor] daughter's passport is due to expire Dec 30 2020, which pushes the 6-month passport validity rule, if we are somehow able to travel to Israel this summer. Customs & Borders says that expedite services are suspended. I've read that the 6-month requirement has some room for exception, both on the US and Israel ends. Does anyone have any advice on whether we should risk it and send her passport out for the renewal? Or should we risk a possible trip plan (should the Israel border open up to non-citizens) by not renewing now?

I'm still waiting for passport submitted in early March. The centers are closed and I haven't a clue when it may come. I don't recommend submitting now, rather contact misrad hapnim before and get a letter from them...

What are parents that just had kids doing? Is it impossible to expedite?

no expedite option, even for a first time passport
emergency passports are only for deaths
