PO doesnít care about you if they mess up (although they may give you another free print if you ask).
I still find it shocking that with all of their experience taking photos their photos were rejected.

I have an international trip scheduled at the end of April, and I just noticed that NJ passport is expiring April 20, 2021. What's my best shot to have it renewed in time?

Thanks

I'm looking to get new passports for my children for an upcoming international trip.

All passport agencies in the NY/CT area seem to be booked solid.

Anyone have recent timeframe experience with expedited mail in from NY or ideas how to get an appointment in NY/CT?

Just did my passport renewal with expedited service.

Took exactly 4 weeks from when I mailed it until I got it back.

(technically I have someone take the picture from me as selfies are not allowed)
Shhh.. I used a selfie 8)

Applied for passport for my toddler 2/17 at Ocean County Connection. Check was just deposited today and status updates to processing.
Passport was approved, printed and shipped yesterday, arriving Monday. So 7 weeks beginning to end.

No, they said to mail in new photos and ID.
The person (rightly) feels that after paying the PO for the photos, they should get new photos for free.
The person has no other ID beside what was sent in already, which the PO said was acceptable. (The issue is a student ID card issued by a Yeshiva.)

The person has no way of proving his identity other then said Yeshiva ID?
Birth Certificate, SS Card???
He Undocumented Immigrant? Why you think he can get passport?

(Go to the DMV and get a Learner permit, or DMV issued ID card)

No need for the sarcasm etc.

At the PO, they took photocopies of his SS card & birth certificate and submitted them with his application.
They also submitted his original (child) passport which expired about a year ago.
On top of that, they asked for one of the following:
Driverís license, State ID, military ID, federal/state/municipal employee ID, or a student ID.
Of those he only had a student ID, which the PO said was ok and yet his application was rejected.

The reasons given for the rejection were:
1) Photo ID wasn't good (even though the PO took the photo themselves).
2) Student ID wasn't good (even though PO said it was and a copy of his SS, BC, & original (child) passport were also submitted).

That's the situation here.
