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.

DW applied for passport renewal by mail with expedited 5 to 7 weeks and paid extra for faster shipping. Sent in application on January 26th and received the passport on March 4th. That was with a little delay because something was wrong with her picture and she had to send in a new picture.

I applied for my two children at my local post office on 2/4/22 and received it 3/5/22. These were not expedited and not fast shipping.

Applied for my child on 2/11 at a post office and received it 3/12. Did not pay expedited or faster shipping. 
Which seems to be consistent with the previous post of it taking a month and a day.

On the other hand applied for renewal for me and DW at the same time and did not receive it yet.

Update since I posed the question:

Sent applications for 2 adult daughters on 2/18 by regular mail, regular service.
Both were "In Process" as of 3/3, and checks cashed on 3/4.
One daughter was approved on 3/11 and received passport 3/14.
Other daughter is still "in process"

Is there a thread about renewing a US passport  in Israel?
Specifically because there are no appointments available.

Highly recommend one of the paid whatsapp groups that sends notices of appointments, they now drop every Wednesday https://www.shirabrown.com/embassy-alerts (no relation, not compensated, I used it to find an appointment)

In terms of actual time frame, turn around from embassy visit to passport in your hands seems to range 3-6 weeks.

WhatsApp but yes, there's a group where they post it.
Just to be clear over 18 is by mail only, I'm assuming you need it for a kid or something.

Trying to help a freind, please let me know if you can reccomend anything.

My friend just turned 18 a few months ago. He also just found out that his parents lost his birth certificate.
-He has never had a US passport
-He has never had any form of ID (besides for birth certificate and SS card)

-He was born in NY
-He is currently living in FL

He has ordered a new birth certificate from vitalchek.com with the most expedited options possible but it will still not arrive until at least June.

Now he has a need to fly to E"Y very soon but has no way to get a passport.

Is there anything he can do???

Any help would be tremendously appreciated! Thank You!!

Apply for a FL ID and take it from there.

I don't believe he can with just a SS card.
Also how will that help him for proof of citizenship to get a passport?

When you say "he has a need to fly to EY very soon", is it a life-or-death emergency?  If it is, he can submit any government-issued photo ID.  If this might apply, read all the details https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/get-fast/emergencies.html

You may qualify for an appointment for life-or-death emergency service if your immediate family member is outside of the United States, and he or she has died, or is dying (hospice care), or has a life-threatening illness or injury, and you need to travel to a foreign country within 3 business days.

Thanks! He would not qualify under life-or-death emergency. He can get an appointment for urgent travel but will still have the issue of no proof of citizenship.

Also just to clarify, very soon is about a month from now. So he has time but his birth certificate is expected in June.

I looked into flying into NY and going to the office in person to pick it up but it appears that it is closed due to Covid. Can anyone confirm if this is true or if there is another way to get a same day birth certificate in NY?
