New Passport Arrives, After Some Additional Drama

Photo of a US PassportIn February  I wrote about submitting my Passport renewal application. Well, turns out I made a mistake and submitted the incorrect application. I thought I could renew if my passport was not more than 10 years expired. Actually, that’s 10 years from issue date, not expiration date.

On March 24, my application was returned, and I was instructed to submit a “new passport” application. Here I go again. I filled out the correct form, made the trip to the post office where it had to be approved by a certified person. They one look at my form and noticed I had filled it out in blue ink. Nope! Had to be black. My bad, says so right at the top of the form. So I grabbed another form and filled it out. I waited until the only “certified” personal there was available. He reviewed and approved my application. I paid the postage, oh, and an extra $25 for resubmitting the application, and I was done.

On May 4th. I received my new passport in the mail. Finally, I am glad I started early and gave this process as much time as I did.
