!!! I Didn’t see this post til RIGHT NOW! That really, really stinks and he really, really needs to push hard for them to get it done. Honestly, it’s ridiculous he hasn’t gotten it yet if other people have gotten theirs. I’d be a mean, mean person at this point! Love you! I know it will work out!

Okay, ask him to call his senator. Seriously. Or you call, and cry. Those people can get a ton done.

I’m with daydream on this!!!  Get whomever you need involved asap.  I have, on occasion, used tears to move an impossible situation forward, and when you really do sound desperate, they will get it done.  Sending happy thoughts and hopes you way πŸ™‚

It is possible for them to make a passport in a few hours.  I’m pretty sure that, when it is less than 7 days, they will be able to bump you up into a fast-track and get it out to him ASAP.  If you want to be ABSOLUTELY sure you might also make an appointment to go in person to  your local passport office (which might, sadly, not be very local).  I think you can make these two weeks in advance – they will certainly only process your paperwork there if you are travelling within two weeks.  This would involve an expediting fee, but they would make the passport for pickup later that day or the next day.  You would need to submit another application there, and have the original supporting documents.  You should also ask them how to make sure that he doesn’t get issued two passports!

To sum up: it’s a pain in the butt, and expensive, but he can totally get a passport still.

this happened to me when I was leaving to study abroad- 3 weeks to go and no passport. my mom called our senator and when she did that they sent it the NEXT DAY (!!). so i’d recommend that for sure! usually you just talk to the senators secretary or something. worked like a charm.

Hi there.  I can see why you are so worried.  From your post I’m not sure if you are saying that your fiance needs a US or Canadian passport but I do know that you can get a US passport in just a few days if you use a passport expediting service. i know 2 people who have used rushmypassport.com. there is an extra fee but well worth it.  They can’t help expedite the current application but he can submit a new one with them if he has all the paperwork needed. I think there is a similar type of servcie in canada but you would have to check on that.

Ring Bearer, seriously, have him call someone from his local branch of the government. It will get done. Immediately.

You know how I work for a company that has offices all over the world? Well my job used to be securing visas for people, and I had to deal with passport issues all the time. We regularly called local senators and congressmen and had them get passports in time for us so we could get visas (which have a time frame of their own). I mean it, make him call today.
