This should help:

http://iafdb.travel.state.gov/


They are close to $100 for a new one. Renewals are less.

I've been hearing around 6 weeks; sometimes less, but 6 to be safe.

Thanks! I had mine all ready to go last summer. Then come to find out Walgreen's gave me an outdated application. So, I put it on the back burner. Here I am at crunch time again due to my procrastination. It is not required for my cruise, but I would feel better having it in case of an emergency.

if it's for your Glory cruise in October you have plenty of time. Just be sure you have your certified birth cirtificate and a current photo I.D., as well as two passport photos. It's better to have the photos done professionally because if they are not just right, they won't accept them. Some Passport offices will do the photos right there - then you know they are right; but find out before you go.

Gee, after Dave's decree how could you even think of going without one.

That's why I'm scrambling to get this done, and asking questions while he is away.

Seriously, thanks for your help. I will get everything sent off next week. I just found out, thanks to the link you posted, I have to drive to another town. Our Post Office no longer accepts the applications.

We had our last photo's taken at Walgreen's some years ago & the quality was terrible & they still accepted them. The more I look at the under exposed pictures today I wish I hadn't accepted them at the time. I mentioned it to one of the agents & he shrugged it off saying that as long as it's the proper size it's OK.

Let me clarify: by "done professionally" I didn't mean a sitting with a portrait photographer; any drugstore, camera shop, One Hour Photo or Postal Center will work fine; as Rich said, it's the size, color of the background and placement in the frame that are important--not the quality of the photograph. I have witnessed several photos being rejected because they didn't meet the above criteria.

If you are a AAA member, you might want to give them a call. In our area they do the photos very cheaply, and its free for some members. You get these photos while you wait.
