What are parents that just had kids doing? Is it impossible to expedite?
What are new drivers doing? NY DMV is closed as well.

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

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.

So based on this and their * should I bother applying for my kid or just wait until after the summer?

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

What do you gain by waiting? May as well get in line now. If they are forced to close their offices again, that backup will only grow.

Idea is applying now is a big unknown when you will get passport, and you lose your chance to apply with expedited process once (if?) they open it

Even non emergencies.

Are they up to phase 3 yet?

During phase one, we will continue to prioritize customers who need a passport in the next 72 hours for a life-or-death emergency only.

no, but if you have a ticket for within 36 hours it usually works. My brother (who lives in Israel, and wanted to get back home after having a baby a couple of weeks ago) made it last Friday, waited 5 hours and walked out with the passport.

I renewed my daughter's passport on may 6 and it's still processing.

Hi,

Have same dilemma, my son's passport is first expiring in Dec. Hope to travel soon to Europe (mother is a european so should work even if child only US passport).

Passport isn't expired, but its within the 6 months. is this rule really enforced?
