    same.

    unless you live in the boonies or you're on a really tight schedule, there's no need to pay extra to rush it.

    i had an emergency so i got it in 3 days. it's more of a hassle though and requires you to drive to the main immigration offices (downtown la)

    The best thing to do and usually it works is to lie when on the paper ask when are you planning your trip... I just paid the $100 and got it in like 2 weeks...

    I got mine in a week. Expedited plus military orders ftw. I got the passport card as well for when I don't feel like carrying around my actual passport.

    Got it in 2 weeks. Didn't pay any extra fees and this was sending it to the office in Philadelphia from Honolulu by regular mail. Only complaint being thespot that showed up on my collar when they printed the picture.

    couple of years ago i applied for mine 2 months before my trip, didnt rush it because i had 2 months and they say 4-6 weeks, it was a week before my trip istill had no passport.

    i had to call up and make an appointment at the main office and drive into manhattan 2 days before my trip, wait outside the building online for an hour at7am, and re-apply. i was told to leave and comeback at 1pm. took a walk downtown, showed up at 1:00 and they announced my name (they actually butchered it tothe point where i barely understood), and i finally received my passport after about 6 hours at the damn office.

    However it isnt a standard passport, it has a small symbol on the cover, and believe it or not, i call my mother upon arriving in Italy she tells me mypassport has come in the mail. So when i get home i now have 2 passports, the standard one that i applied for months ago, and the "same dayissuance". i get a letter in the mail from the Department of Homeland Security telling me that if i attempt to travel with my same day issuance again iwill be detained at the airport. So i sent in my same day issuance to the address given and now have the original passport i applied for months before my trip.i have a feeling once i attempt to travel with this passport im going to have some type of problem. bottom line, spend the extra money and get it rushed justto be safe.

    and that trip to Italy was destined to fail, my flight was delayed an entire day and my luggage got send to London.
