Good Luck, let us know how that goes. We applied mid March and haven't received them. Went to AAA today and was told to expect 12 weeks for delivery. We're leaving 5 weeks from today, I hope they get here soon.

wow...march and you still don't have your passports? We got our kids passports in less than 2 weeks. Lucky us!

I got mine at the passport agency a long time ago.. don't forget to bring proof that you are traveling.

I went to the passport office with my ticket in hand to leave the next day to europe. I got to the passport office with my pics by 10am and by 3pm I had my passport. This was in Boston I am sure there is something in DC where with ticket in hand you can do this.

oK, here is some knowledge I can share from first hand experience. We had applied for passports the 1st week in march. we are leaving Friday morning. We went to the Chicago office today, and it was a nightmare. We all left with passports, but waited from 11-7 to get them.

First, I would call and make sure how the appointment system works. You may set up an appointment, and then be turned away if you aren't traveling in 48 hrs. Warning - it seems that every agent tells you something different.

in the Chicago office, you are able to walk in with no previous passport request, if you are traveling within 48 hours. make sure you have your birth certificate or other proof of citizenship (stamped original), passport pictures, photo ID< and travel itinery. I am not sure if DC works the same, but I dsaw a lot of walk-ins receive their passports. Just prepare to wait all day, and bring something to keep entertained!!
