Ugh. That stinks! At this point though, I’d do whatever I had to do (and pay whatever I had to pay) to get my dang passport. It’s a hassle and a huge frustration now, but it’ll be so worth it when you hit the beach in Punta Cana.

Good luck working it all out!

crazy passport. i hope you are able to resolve your situation.  but pay whatever you need to pay and worry about trying to get reimbursed for additional fees later. 


 i needed a passport when all that crazy passport stuff was going on.


with plenty of time i went to my local passport office to get everything done, i even paid the expedition fee to get a tracking number, etc.


i received confirmation that my passport arrived in the Philly office but they had no record of receiving it after weeks and weeks went by. 


finally i was able to talk to a live person and they told me there was such a back up that they only thing that could be done was 2 weeks before my trip get in line at the Philly office and hope i get in before they close.  Philly is a 2.5 hour drive (DC was closer but they told me it had to be Philly).


my dad took me very early in the morning and we stood in line for ever. 


in the end, i was able to get everything reimbursed that i paid before i went to the philly office and had to pay their fees. 


now 7ish years later, my childhood passport that i had to mail in to renew get a new passport still hasn’t turned up.
