i should have applied last year.. oh well. finally applied last week.. now another 4 week wait.. :rolleyes:

Did you pay for it to be expedited? or just regular processing? We're seeing an average of 9-10 days for expedited.

Just regular.. Not going anywhere soon, so why pay the extra $60?.. Ordered the passport card as well..

Hello everyone, I just received this email:

We have finished processing your passport, and it has been mailed to you.

Your passport application locator number is 2*******.

You requested delivery by regular mail. Passport Agencies use Priority Mail. This means you should receive your passport on or about 01/19/2013.

Not bad at all, taking about 2 weeks expedited.

Good luck everyone :)

got passport and passcard today on regular processing (wow, that was quick).. checked dept of state website, said still in final processing and to expect to recieve it on 20th jan.. yet another reason why i always advise here to never check on the status update.. for the most part they are wrong.. total wait time.. 9 DAYS!! sent app on 7th jan and both passbook and card came in today 16th jan.. whohoo didn't have to pay for expedite fee (seriously, why waste $60).. :thumbs:
