I'm pretty sure email addresses are NOT case sensitive.

You are right. For some reason I thought I had tested it before and found that email addresses were case sensitive. However, I just tried it now, they are not case sensitive. So it was an incorrect assumption on my part.

Passport - Renewal for my daughter

I have travel coming up on 6/16. I am using third party agent to renew the passport using expedited service.. State department cashed my check on 6/4. I was wondering if anyone has experience with these third party agencies. If this passport is not here by Monday or Tuesday should I consider going to the DC passport office ?

Thanks

"DOOR to DOOR": 8 days including a weekend

US passport renewal timeline:
2018-05-29 Tue - sent old passport for EXPEDITED SERVICE via USPS priority mail
2018-05-31 Thu -USPS shows package delivered
2018-06-04 Mon - Bank shows check has been cashed
2018-06-07 Thu - new passport received

Note: This was the first time I gave them my email address, so while I assume that _now_ it's in their system, I received no email notifications throughout the process.

In any event, file a search with the USPS Mail Recovery Center; perhaps the passport and envelope got separated:

https://www.usps.com/help/missing-mail.htm

It looks like U.S. passports found loose in the mail are automatically returned to the State Department, but whether that includes cancelled passports I don't know. In any event, you might want to contact the State Department as well. Do a Google search for an office there called CLASP.
Don't give up hope, indeed. The State Department admitted over the phone my old passport was lost and I should get new visas, but it showed up today in the mail months late.

Hi! New here. Waiting patiently for my passport to arrive.

Here are my data points:

05/21/2018 - Mailed renewal of passport/passport card, ROUTINE service, to Irving, Texas Passport Renewal Center - requesting 52 page renewal and passport card.
05/23/2018 - Passport/Passport card arrived at Irving, TX
05/26/2018 - Passport App traceable via passport application status website, received e-mail from Dept of State notifying me of the same.
05/29/2018 - Department of State cashed my check
06/13/ 2018 - Still waiting for updates.

While it is still within the 4-6 weeks time frame from DOS, I was hoping to get lucky and get it within 3 weeks, like some data points listed in here. Oh well. Another factor, I am a dual citizen so I had write a separate "ACTS and CONDITIONS" statement explaining my dual citizenship. Perhaps, that could be the delay but who knows. Will update once I get my passport and passport card has been renewed.

Hi,

I am in dilemma here. Any insight will be helpful! We are planning to travel 7/23 (tickets not yet booked due to new credit card not yet delivered (trying to get extra points by meeting minimum spend requirement with these tickets purchase ), and realized passport are expired

Should I go urgent passport agency route ( needing visa for second country we will visit, first country does not need visa) OR just do the expedited service hoping renewed passport will reach me in time?
I have appointment with passport agency in two days but I wont be able to purchase my ticket before that.

Once I send the passport to National Passport Processing Center, PA, If my travel date is too close by, can I contact them? Is it even possible?
Thanks
