How Long Will It Take to Renew My Passport?

on 6 Comments

I’m cheap so on March 5 when I mailed my old passport to Philadelphia to be renewed, I didn’t pop for the $60 expediting fee. Just paid the $75 renewal fee–taking a chance that I wouldn’t get the thing back in time to leave the country in April or May. I’d heard horror stories about a 3-month backlog.

Well it came back yesterday, March 18. Under two weeks. FYI.
