"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."


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...

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

except for suspending registration for non renewal, of course. One thing in common for most municipalities is all revenue sources were deemed critically essential.... offices to appealthough, were closed due to COVID19 precautions...
Including parking violations for blocking your own driveway, expired res. permit, expired meter, street cleaning, etc in BOS
Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

Nothing to do with “not to drive”
I would just think that a passport is far more important than a license at this point.
Especially for those who live away from their parents and came back to be with there parents to give birth and now not able to travel due to the baby not being able to get a passport

See OP...

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?

Make stuff happen.
