I wonder if it has to deal with where you applied for it? I have friends who applied 10 to 12 weeks ago and still do not have them. My daughter needs to do a name change on hers before her December cruise. I advised her to pay for expedited service just in case.

I have a hint for a name change in case the passoprt can't get there in time. If she got married or divorced then the notarized document showing a marriage or divorce should suffice in case it takes too long. The document must be the original ans signed by the judge or minister.

My daughter was married three years ago and figured it was time to change the name on the passport. She applied at her local post office today and they told her she wouldn't get it back until February if she didn't expedite it.

Wow, I was told it would be 4 months before I would get mine so I didn't bother with one! Maybe now I will and have a chance to visit my husband in Korea before he leaves there.
