    Did anyone just recently apply for their passport and plan on going to Mexico to visit within the next month or so (taking advantage of the no passport-only have to show your passport application)?

    I am planning on applying for the passport this weekend but would really like to look into flying down to Cabo in the next month or so to check some things out. I just didn't know how they would react to that. I guess on the passport application I can but I plan to travel in the next month....

        Yes, i think you can just show your passport application.
        I am a WC in Cancun & Riviera Maya and last week I had one of the witness with a printed paper (assport application) because he had to fly before and his passport was not ready...

        I do not know if that was your question...!!

        Good luck and better to ask them!!

            Morgan,

            I haven't found out yet, we are getting up early tomorrow and heading to the post office. I will ask them and then let you know tomorrow!!

            I am guessing it should be okay because they didn't specifically specify otherwise...

            Let's hope!! :)

                I heard that you have to have applied 2 weeks before you travel because not only do you have to show the piece of paper (application), you have to come up in the computer/show up on the govt website. does anyone know anything about this?

                  This is probably true. At the last minute, my grandpa couldn't go because my grandma is sick. My aunt was going to take her place, and went to apply the Monday before we left on Saturday, and they told her it was too late because she wouldn't be in the system.

                  P.S. If you use that form that says you applied, DO NOT FORGET YOUR BIRTH CERTIFICATE!!! My brother's girlfriend and 2-month old had to go home from the airport and fly the next day, because they didn't bring the baby's birth certificate!!! Good thing my aunt and uncle were flying out the next day, so Katie and the baby went with them.

                    I can tell you that they are very back-logged on processing of the passports....it took me 15 weeks to get mine in when I was planning on going to the Bahamas for a DW.

                      Okay this isn't good about the birth certificate because they physically took our birth certificates when we applied for our passports so we won't be able to bring them with us if we chose to travel soon....
