Please don't mess around w/getting your passport.

Jump to last reply

My husband, god bless him, is somewhat travel challenged- great at other things, but travel planning is not the highlight. But he planned a whole trip to Ireland w/my teen son; I opted not to go so he ended up having to plan it and has done a fantastic job of pulling the trip together in the last two months, setting up times to meet relatives he has in Ireland, renting a car, got good airfare (although I never would have used expedia for air, and he did, but hey, it's his trip).

So 7 wks ago he finally sends in for his passport through the local post office. I suggested expediting, but he thought it would get here in 5-6 wks. like all the literature and State dept website says it takes. They are supposed to leave this coming Sat. and NO PASSPORT has come. He has been calling and getting different story from each person he talks to; they are all saying passports are running at 8 wks right now. One agent told him to get an appt. at the downtown D.C. passport facility and take a day off of work this week, but when he goes on the site to make such an appt they are all booked up rest of the week.

To top it off he has a 2 day trip planned Wed and Thurs of this week to a mini-football camp in New Jersey w/the same son. ANd he won't cancel that trip (at least he hasn't been willing to so far, beleive me, I am working hard on that point). So he only has Friday to deal w/this in person anywhere, if he could get an appt.

His trip is in jeopardy. I feel awful for him (and I am glad I was not planning on going, it is his trip and his tragedy, but of course my son's also).

PLEASE DON'T EVER FOOL AROUND WITH WAITING FOR A PASSPORT ON A TRIP LIKE THIS!! If he would have just paid the $60 and gotten it expeditied, everything would be fine.

If anyone has any advice, please tell- but I think he might just be screwed on this unless it shows up in the mail in the next 3 days.
