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) .

I applied and waited over month and a half, and website still did not show the application to be processing. A friend gave me a contact in my local senator's office. I emailed the guy, he responded that day. Less than a week later, I have the passport!

When I was called to expedite they I paid for an overnight mailing. Maybe he should call back?

I don't think so. My date of travel is in a few days so they offered the overnighting. If they paid for expedite over a week ago when were they told it would be ready? Also did they check the online status checker?

I guess mine was handled differently due to the Congressional inquiry. They did mention it in my call.

I have a ticket booked to Costa Rica in 10 days and just realized that my passport expired. There are no appointments available in the entire usa until 12/14 unless it's a life and death situation. I don't want to take advantage of that just for a vacation...
Anyone have other ideas how to get my passport renewed?

Are the agencies not taking walkins?
