This was the first time getting my passport, but with proof I was traveling out of the country (a letter from my employer and an itinerary) mine was ready the following day. When I went to the gov't office it was dead.

The only thing I can suggest PP is to get the wheels in motion now.

nevermind, i found it. the official site says 4-6 weeks. http://travel.state.gov/passport/get/pr ... _1740.html

apparently, if you make an appointment at regional processing center and you are traveling in the next two weeks you can get it done on the spot. am i reading this correct? http://travel.state.gov/passport/about/ ... c_898.html
