After signing up for a Travel.gov account, it takes about 2.5-3 weeks for the invite to be able to renew online.

When you tracked it, it showed shipped?
Online it says approved, but they sent me an email with a tracking number which shows it en route.

Anyone successfully get a same day passport for a newborn in NY by providing a DR letter?

Normal procedure for emergencies is to call State dept hotline to start a case file first. If there are appointments available they will book it and let the Passport office verify the emergency, otherwise they will liaison with the passport office to make time available.

The passport officials have discretion to decide what constitutes a true emergency. NY is known to be pretty tough, other offices may be more lenient. It will depend on how busy they are and how loudly their spouse yelled at them that morning

Went with three on November 10th and got them back today on December 7th.
In Brooklyn NY.

 Went with another one on 11/02 in Jackson/Lakewood PO and still waiting for it.

  Bad idea to mail it from Lakewood/Jackson.
10 Weeks later it's being processed.
  Just got an email that it's accepted and it's being mailed out with its USPS tracking number sent to me.

 Wow, what a difference in the timing.

I mailed in an application 12/1 and I just got a notice that it is printing today. Not too bad. Lakewood, so sent to Philly.

My parents are trying to renew their passports for travel at the end January. There are no available appointments. Any other ideas?

I currently have an appointment to renew my passport in CT on January 20th.  Given the CDC changes I would like to move my trip up and on the 20th so I would need an appointment on the 18th or 19th.  Does anyone have an appointment that I can possibly trade with them or that I can pay for? Thanks.

Where can I get a expedited passport for a baby in NY?
I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success. Great things come from hard work

I am working with someone who has a few appointments for sale.
Pm me if you'd like an appointment in NYC or CT.

If I'd like to receive my renewed passport around late May or early June, when would be the recommended time to mail in the application from Lakewood, NJ?
Thank you.

I'm trying to time it to receive it by late May/early June.
I'd rather not get it earlier than that.

Why not? Are you trying to maximize every month before you have to renew it? No one knows what their load will look like in a few months from now.

Yes, that is my thought process.

But don't you think to apply 4 1/2 months before I want it is too early?

1 month here 1 month there, trust me your time and money (assuming you will need it to do it rush) worth more than that!

Do it now, specifically that we are in Covid period.
