I got my passport renewed last year by mail. It took 7 - 8 weeks to get the old and new passports.

Default Passport process

Last year I renewed my passport in Houston thru usps mail. They took 5 weeks for me. Even if you go in person, they would take 2 days for processing. Check with the consulate.

Go in person that would be best. Houston will not respond to mail or phone calls, Their whole switch board is messed up. I had tough time when I sent it to Houston.

Can we go in person, I thought they would encourage only in case of emergency. Any one know that if we can go to the consulate and get the passport renewed quickly for sure.

Thanks

I am not sure, if you can go in person to houston, mine was sent to washington dc and I got it in 10 days. I had tough time for a different case.

Try to avoid Houston, you will not get any response or anyhelp, I guess they are sleeping for ever.

We cannot get the passport renewed anywhere, if you are in south most probably you need to get it renewed from Houston. So any one ............who went in person for non-emergency case.

Thanks

I think it is stated in their website and also someone in the forum was saying this. Did you happen to be in Florida when you renewed the passport last year from DC. if yes, then I can send it to DC as they seem to renew in 10 business days. Am i right...............

Default Get Involved

Guys: One way to get involved is to find Congressional candidates (especially Republicans) and educate them. If you really want to push them along, ask can you help with their campaign.

For example, Eddie Adams in the Tampa Bay Area, is more open to discussion than the current incumbent. And, if he can be found open to backing legislation to expedite the Green Card process; then this movement has a new friend.

He is certainly (like most Republicans) no friend of illegal immigration. But, he might be open to pressuring the USCIS to move the legal immigration applications along.
