The soonest is probably 2-3 weeks after submitting the application. You'll need to pay like $60 on top of the regular application fee then add the cost of expedited shipping.

Look this site for any emergency info on passports:

If your oath and swearing in is in the morning, you'll have time to go to the post office in the afternoon to fill out the application.

I got mine 170 minutes after dropping off my application, which I did the morning after becoming a US citizen.

How badly do you want it?


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Have to make an appointment with one of their service centers, require having a plane ticket with a flight within two weeks, photos, original documentation, and a credit card.

show the locations.

A whole bunch of 3rd party places can be found on the web that are not directly affiliated with the Department of State, personally, I wouldn't trust them, only the Department of State can issue a passport, would deal directly with them.

Am I reading your signature wrong? You aren't married yet? You can't apply for citizenship until 3 years after becoming an LPR. I am not sure what the timeframe is between the wedding and when you offically become an LPR. I do know there is a period of time you can't travel while you are going thru AoS (Unless you get emergency AP).

Stepdaughter would be in that situation if she wanted to petition for some guy in her home country, single, waiting the for five year, and in a big rush to see him. Just one example, others get green cards from the lottery or employment. Also read more of her love live time frame, really not much there about her immigration history.

But for those of us where the USCIS kept us apart, we can appreciate her impatience in this matter.

I don't know who is telling you the same day or within a week. Now, that we need them for travel to Canada and Mexiceo, the passport issuing office is bombarded with applications. I was born in the US and it took 8 weeks from time I applied to the day I got the passport in the mail.

Can't seem to keep quiet on this subject, was it 3 or 4 years ago they started this Canadian/Mexico nonsense? Could check on the day of my renewed US passport, even paying for expedient service, it took 4 1/2 months. But recently, two weeks and five days for my stepdaughters first time US passport using slow standard service.

I vividly recall hounding them everyday a month before my flight was due, learned all the tricks to bypass their answering machine to speak an to an agent. They did send me my passport in time, exactly 12 hours before my flight was to depart. Mexico I could see with all the illegals they claim we have here, but Canada? Was done by an executive order by Bush claiming the Canadians weren't checking for terrorists to his satisfaction. Now we all are now treated like terrorists. And he was buddy buddy with that bin Laden family.
