would my kids get passports in time?

Hi There,

I just found a great deal for cozumel on the 14th of April for a week stay for me and my family, except both my kids 17 and 15 don't have passports yet. Would it be to late?

You should probably go to your closest passport office - not the post office or Court House - a place where they can actually issue the passport - look at the State Dept website to find the closest one to you - it'll probably be in a major city. It'll require an interview in person. Call them first (try close to midnight eastern time) and plan on holding for awhile - to be sure you can get them before you book the trip.

If that UP thing by your name means the UP of MI. there probably isn't a main office very close, but read the responses to my post and go from there----Best of luck

Only chance would probably be going to Chicago (or whatever regional office is near you.) I had to do this once a few years back when I had to go on a last minute trip to Paris and my passport was expired.

Drove from Iowa to Chicago. Got there when it opened. Stood in line for a couple hours. Filled out and turned in application. Returned about 2 PM. Waited about two more hours, and then got passport in person. Of course, the lines might be even longer now, due to the new passport requirements.

Good luck!

If you're willing to pay for it, you can get a passport almost overnight.

Thanks for your responses. Do you know much much it would cost per person to overnight it? Thanks

Do an online search for passports. Lots of sites to expedite an order. Just be sure you have the correct birthcertificates.
