Need a U.S. Passport Immediately?

You should make an appointment to be seen at a Regional Passport Agency only if:

The U.S. passport is needed in less than 2 weeks for international travel
The U.S. passport is needed within 4 weeks to obtain a foreign visa
Contact the National Passport Information Center to make an appointment or locate a Passport Agency.

go to :

http://travel.state.gov/passport/npic/npic_898.html

and make a appointment you will get it the same day or the next day , (depends when you are flying) .

Ive heard of this, I just call and ask them to expedite?

I did this recently for my daughter. I filled out a form on my senators website letting them know of the issue. There is also a release that you have to fill out allowing them to give your information to another federal dept. I got a call back from a staffer within a day or two. She took some more information. Two days later my passport status changed to mailed.

Can anyone explain you they needed to switch to phone appointments?
They should have just asked for the applicants full info when making an appointment online , so that nobody can resell ...

Probably to put a stop to the shtick once and for all because otherwise the same chevre would take hundreds of dollars to take down customers information and use bots to nab the appointments the milisecond they become available, depriving everyone else of the ability to make appointments like they were doing until now.

Trick is to press the last 2 at 8AM, rather than starting the call at 8AM. I had 2 people try it this morning- one pressed "2" at 8AM and had no hold times and got an appointment for today. The second called at 8AM, had a 30 min wait, and was told that the closest they have available is in VT.

Called (aka pressed 2) from two phones at exactly 8 o'clock. One picked up right away so I hung up the other. Five minute convo and I had an 11 o'clock appointment at the center I wanted.

January is more than 16 days out from today, so no, you can't make an appointment for January.
Always use an Amex, you'll thank me one day.

Any advice?

Is this the case specifically if your travel is exactly two weeks out? Meaning, the schedule of the 14th day opens up that morning for appointments, therefore calling at 8 am sharp secures you an apt?

Has anyone renewed passport by mail recently? Would like to know how long it actually takes for regular and expedited service. State Dep website says 8-11 for regular and 5-7 weeks for Expedited. Just trying to figure what the reality is.
