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) .

my passport expires in a month. i am not planning on going anywhere but i would like to get it renewed. what is the best way right now? i don't like being without a passport for too long.
If you have no travel plans, I don’t see why you shouldn’t just renew by mail now.

Question is if he prefers not having it now for a few months with no travel plans and it expires in a month anyway or having to wait a few weeks when he may have travel plans.

I believe you can just apply for a new passport which costs $35 more than a renewal & avoid sending your passport in

Does anyone have anything new to report, re applying/renewing?  I spoke to them about two weeks ago and was told to wait.  That said, most of their offices are open (not to the public) and their backlog is not much above normal.

Any way for a US citizen baby living in Israel without a passport to enter the US? Embassy emergency appointments are booked until late August.

Its not really true. You just have to do some pushing. Just because its an American Embassy it does not mean its American.

But the schedule doesn’t have any openings. You mean to call them and push to get a slot opened?

Yeah, correct or maybe find someone you know there or something like that.
I had a friend who needed a passport for his baby... same idea... no appointments available.....he pushed a little and got an appointment the next day.
Make sure to send emails also, even though it says don't send more then once... You have an appointment already so they won't cancel.
Also push by both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. They say there is no real communication between the two regarding these matters.
