US Passport

Getting a passport the old fashion way from the US Post Office isn't going to well.

Appointments are 3-4 months out it seems like and on the days they except walk ins they only take 15 apps that day and the lines for those start forming at 5:30am.

Have any of you had or know anybody that has had any experience with getting a US Passport for the first time using www.uspassportonline.com or a similar website?

CIBT is the best in the business. They are fantastic to work with and I have gotten Visas as fast as 5 days through them. They keep in constant contact with you on the progress and you can speak to a live person anytime. You will not be disappointed working with them.

Where it is asking for proof of departure. I'm not traveling within the next 2 weeks. So do I still need that?

What's the cost for using this company rather than USPS?

Previously have gone to the regional office in Miami for renewals, had passport within the the day. Just a suggestion that if they have a regional passport office, might give it a try. Find it pretty pathetic that these days we need a second party vendor to work with the bureacracy of the US government to get a passport!

For the departure date proof, I have used a tentative itinerary or a mock itinerary that my travel department or travel agent can do for you. Your passport and/or visa is by no means tied to the mock dates. Good luck.

Have you tried alternatives to the post office--I think you have this option in Waxahachie. Or maybe worth heading up to Big D.
