Over a month ago, I saw online that you can submite for a passport renewal and it inly takes 2 weeks. Well, my passport was not yet expired, but since I wanted to ensure I receive a 13a visa from the Philippines, I decided to expedite the process and get a new passport. Well, 3 weeks latter, I still dodn't have my passport back. After calling several dozen times and leaving hateful messages, I finally got a phone call from New Hampshite, where my passport was being processed. They said it would take just a few more weeks. (What the hell happened to "Expedite")???? Well, I pleaded with them to just return my old passport and I will renew in the Philippines, they did and it came back in the mail just a few days ago, Now, my dogs paperwork, that's a whole different story.
