Good luck.
I hope you have provided sufficient information for them to grant your passport.
Please let us know when you get the good news.


The passport application says that your social security card is not acceptable. I will let everyone know if and when I hear anything.

Default Update!

I checked on the status of my passport application and they said it is being "processed" however, they have cashed the check I sent. Hoping that is a good sign....LOL

I know one thing, if I ever get my passport, I am never ever letting it expire. I do not want to go through this again. LOL
Congratulations on having the foresight to get a passport and for applying for it early enough that you had time to get all the paperwork done. You are right, keep it renewed and you will never have to go through this hassle again. Enjoy your freedom to travel!

It's gotten ridiculous the hoops that US born law abiding citizens have to jump through because of terrorists and illegal immigrants and other criminals.
If you are from another country and just sneak across the border, things are easier!

Years ago my father needed a visa to go to Mexico;
Mexican official, Passport?
Dad, Never had one
official, Voter registration?
Dad, If you vote in an election you don't get a new one, mine crumbled to dust several years ago
official, A five dollar bill?
Dad, Yes. Handed it to him and that was that.
Not so easy in this country now!
