New Online Passport Renewal – Fast or Furious?

Online Passport Renewal
Updated: Sep 5th, 2022Jake has some interesting thoughts below, but the bottom line is that you can now setup an account here to apply for your online passport renewal:

We are all busier than a 1 armed paper hanger with the crabs.

So how can it be your fault that your passport expired in 2006?

The airlines won’t care……….Right?

Ahhh, yeah…your F’d.

Once you get done wailing, pointing fingers, and gnashing your teeth,  go online to the new Passport Renewal Website.

In A Nutshell:   My car can drive itself, – but I can’t get a passport renewed.   Where do I need to send some stimulus?

The Bad News:

The typical non-expedited wait for a passport renewal is 11 dog years.

So you should have your passport renewed by the time you retire.

The Good News:

Executive Order  432,445,210 was issued.

So the government is now Transforming Federal Customer Experience and Service Delivery to Rebuild Trust in Government

If you click the link, be sure you have sucked down a Venti mocha triple-shot.  It’s a deep read.

But, hidden in all that pork is this key improvement:

“Americans will be able to renew their passports securely online, saving time from having to wait and the effort and cost required to print, go to a post office, and use a paper check. We must use technology to modernize government and implement services that are simple to use, accessible, equitable, protective, transparent, and responsive for all people of the United States.”

Why did they use 6 words to just say “faster”.

Unfortunately, we don’t have the online link for you yet. Yay! NOW we have a link for you, but you’ll need to apply for an online account before you can begin the online passport renewal process:

As soon as the gubment gets this ‘modernized’ technology online we will have it for you. In the meantime, you can get an Check Pricesexpedited Passport Renewal from iVisa.

Btw….they just jacked the price of your passport up by $20.

Can you say ‘Transitory Inflation’.    When will it transit back down?
