Recommended Posts

there is no reason not to get it sooner and check it off your list.

It usually takes a few weeks to get it, but I don't think it's ever too early. I know there are ways to get it fast if you have to, but I wouldn't save it until the last minute.
I travelled to mexico last week using my birth certificate and driver's licence. I'd done it a couple times before- no big deal. Well, it turns into a HUGE deal when you lose your birth certificate in the airport!!! Talk about a nightmare! It's like 4:30am and our flight leaves at 6 and we don't have time to get home and back. Thankfully they told me I could travel using my voter registration card that by some miricle I happened to have in my wallet. However, when I got to Mexico, they weren't going to let me in. I had to convinve the guy that they let me on the plane in Detroit with the voter card and he made a big deal about it and asked me why I didn't have a passport yet, and chewed me up and down for traveling without my birth certificate, much less a passport.
Anyway- the long and short of it is, I'll now be getting my passport ASAP!
