Dan's post describing his experience

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

Applied for a child 3/10 got the passport yesterday 6/15.
Which state did you apply in?

(This goes for all posters. In the past, outside of NY and TX was much faster. Curious to see how the pattern holds today).

If you are desperate to get a passport in time your local congressperson or senator can assist in getting an appoinment or speeding it up if you have an application in progress
we contacted their office and they opened a case with a case worker and we got the passport in time
had we needed an emergency appt, they can potetially arrange that to
the reason i said possibly, is becuase at the same time we called the passport office ourselves and they claimed it was being done, so i have no idea if the congressman helped at all
Amudim govt office says 50/50

Iíve used my congressman (2 different ones ) 3 times now with success. And a friend a 4th. It depends which one I guess if they are motivated enough to help.
Chestnut Ridge NY if it makes a difference.
Twice help with embassy appt  in Israel, once  to help get my passport faster in USA , once to waive document requirements for renewal ( last one was during Corona , may be exception )

Call for an emergency appointment.  Or call your congressman. Tomorrow!

Applied for child first time applicant. Paid for expedite and it took 5 weeks
Same here. Seems like it's about 5 weeks now for expediting. From the day you send in the application.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

You're best bet may be to call and make an appointment at one of the passport offices and get it same day and pay. $100 for new passport, $35 plus $60 expedited service.

That's for people with travel within 2 weeks.  As proven by a ticket. Even a refundable one.
