Has anyone renewed a passport recently? I mailed mine in 5 weeks ago and status is still “not available” online and I need to travel in a month

Got to be more clear? Passport for which country - US/ other? Which processing center/ embassy?

I’ve tried calling and after going through a few automated questions, I get like a fax / disconnected tone

There's a lot of delay now. Also even if you call, there's nothing much they can do until the status changes to "In processing". Then maybe you can file to expedite it. Hmm you might be cutting it close with your travel.

wait time is 3 months now; if you already sent it in too late to expedite.

It says 10-12 weeks on their website (but it also says it can take *up to* 4 weeks from when we mail it in to show as “in process” and it’s been over 5 weeks for me now)

I did at the beginning of Covid and it took a few months.

I mailed mine in early May, haven’t seen my check deposited.

Oh wow that’s great news! I mailed mine on may 4 but still no news / update on portal. Hoping it happens this week 🤞

It said 10-12 weeks when I did it and I had exactly 12 weeks (although anecdotally, it seemed to be taking others about 8 weeks and I thought that with Covid / borders closed, it would be quicker). My passport doesn’t expire for over a year so I really just need the old one back (since I’m moving abroad in a month, I figured it’d be easier to renew now while still in the US)

If you haven't resolved this issue, go to your Senators website. They have processes to help reach out to government offices on your behalf. It can be pretty effective.

When I had this happen I called the number listed somewhere on the passport website and they gave me an ETA and asked for my travel dates to ensure that it would get done in time. I also decided to expedite it via the phone and it did make it in time

Ugh I can get through on the phone numbers they list. I go through a few prompts then get like a disconnected dial tone. I’ve tried multiple times over past few weeks. You don’t recall what phone number you used? It’s been 7 weeks now!!

Not sure what the status is with covid...but there are some locations you can go in person. I know there is one in dc

Could I change return address and have it mailed to be abroad? I don’t need it to leave the country, I just need it to return in august
