My nephew renewed his passport in February and it took just over two weeks. This was in the Minneapolis area.

From what I have seen, renewals take about the same time as new passports. From what people on the boards are posting, nationwide, it is around 4 weeks.

Go ahead and get it renewed. The three month waits are a thing of the past.

Take care,
Mike

Default Time To Get Passport

The web site coverning passports has some recent updates on it. The time for processing as of June 26, 2009 is 4-6 weeks for normal processign and 2-3 for expedited processing.Go to the US Dept of State's web site for current up to date info.

May I add that it depends how long a passport has been expired. Renewing an existing passport and renewing an expired passport are two totally different things.

That could be true, I renewed mine right before it expired, so it was still good at the time.
