Postby Mel69 » Tue Jul 04, 2017 1:45 pm

I keep looking in the US consulate website but as usual very vage , Does anyone know what is the fastest turn around for a passport renewal ?
I have two pages left in my passport and have to get a new work permit from Spain , but also have to
travel back to Europe next week :oops:
wondering if anyone knows , and yes I have an appointment with the consulate already but because of the 4th of July , could not anything before Friday morning

Geez...did mine like 5 years ago. I think it took about 2 -4 weeks, can't remember for sure. Don't believe they have expedited services overseas, only available inside the US (per ACS website). Even so, expedited in the US will cut the process time from 6-8 weeks to 2-3 weeks.

well not sure how i pulled this off but went yesterday with all the documents and a travel itinerary that shows plane tickets and hotel in Switzerland leaving here next Wednesday ,
Gave ll the forms paid and I was asked to wait ,Next thing they call my name I gave them the sad story of visas , work permits , exit process from China , entry process in Spain ............and keeping the job at the same time ,
Next thing I know they gave my old passport back I have to go to pick up the new one which will be back before I come back but no issue you have 90 days to pick it up :)
