Wedding in in 7 weeks! FI forgot to renew his Passport!

Recommended Posts

oK, so I was watching Bridezillas tonight (ha, ha that show is hilarious in small doses, those ladies are crazy! ) and they talked about getting their passports and it dawned on me, FI STILL NEEDS TO RENEW HIS PASSPORT!!!! We both travel a lot and the passport is never an issue. He got his when he was like 20, well...now it is expired!

 

He is a CPA and just got done with a very busy tax season and I reminded him a while ago...his response, of course "I will do it!" So I didn't want to be a nag, so I assumed he would take care it. I actually told him multiple times and it almost caused an argument so I think I dropped it!

 

So I ran upstairs and said, BABE, you didn't renew your PP!!!! And he was like, OH SH*T!

 

Ok, so I guess they can expedite it in 2-3 weeks and we pay more money, but you can imigine how much this is freaking me out!!!!

 

He promises to do this tomorrow.

 

Anyone ever go through this?

 

7 weeks ladies!!! Aarrgggg!!!!!

Don't worry! I have always had mine done like a month before needing to go and just pay the expedite fee. It only takes a couple weeks. How far do you live from Aurora? they have a passport agency. Just tell them you are leaving in 2 weeks (you have to be leaving in 2 weeks), you make an appt w/ them and they can get your passport to you the next day without havin to pay the expedite fees. When I worked for the airport we had an airport agreement with the other airlines allowing us to fly for free on them if we allowed them to do the same. So when they first changed the law w/ passports to Mexico and Canada we all just called said we were leavin in 2 weeks. Used our airport agreement, hopped on Horizon over to Seattle got our passports and flew right back home.

you should be fine (me and FI both got ours in 1-2 weeks, as did many of our guests) but i would expedite anyway ... better safe than sorry!

It will be okay - the expedite really does work, please don't panic! Just get it moving today and everything will be fine.

 

Keep us posted!

I waited until the last minute myself (WTF was I thinking?!) but the expedite option worked wonders. They even told me it should be fine to do it w/o expediting - but peace of mind was worth the extra money. Just make sure he gets down there TODAY!

Congrats on the 7 week countdown BBtoB! My FI got his initial passport this winter for our impromptu vacation, and it only took 7 business days, without the expedite fee! I remember how long passports took right after Sept 11th, but they must have improved their system quite a bit. I'd assume that since your FI is renewing his, it will be even more speedy. Keep us posted and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! smile03.gif

Girl I'm going throught the same thing with my FI except he's Jamaican so he has to get their passport..I keep telling him to get he always say I'll do it.. I really dont know how things work in thier country, but I know over here it takes 3-4 weeks, there's probably longer. Im just so tired of complaining about him not doing it, I would pay for it except he lost his pasport and in JA when u loose ur passport u have to pay $190 (no way Im not paying that). I have me and my other 3 kids to pay for..


Girl it will work out..

Jac- Thanks so much! We do live close to Aurora...I will let FI know he can do this. He may just pay the charge and be done with it. he is still busy with tax extensions and is stressing this week with work.

But that is seriously good to know! Thanks so much!
