    They cashed my check on April 8th. I’ve called twice and told them I was supposed to leave in 2 weeks. All the do is read the same thing that’s on their website. I really leave July 25th but wanted to try the 2 week thing. As of now they’re still not epediting. Fingers crossed.

    They have had our applications since March 10th. I've heard of people that turned their's in, in February. They still have not started Phase 1 of their 3 phase reopening plan. Phase 1 and 2, they will have limited staff and will process passports only on first in/first out basis. Once Phase 3 starts, they will start expediting. No expediting in Phase 1 or 2. There is no given start date, and no given plan on how long each phase will last. Here is an article that has some of the info I was talking about.

    As of Thursday, June 11, various passport agencies and centers are entering phase one of our reopening plan. Go to our Passport Agency and Center page for more information.

    Not directly passport related, but I renewed my global entry online a couple weeks ago, took less than 24 hours to process. So it seems CBP was able to catch up on their backlog of background checks with very few people travelling. So if you've been thinking about GE, you might be able to get your application approved and do the interview on your arrival back from Mexico.

    After the fact advice if you are traveling overseas I would get the global pass it includes TSA pre but gets you thru customs faster. We love it.

    It took me over a month to get my (Mike) precheck! They must have done a seriously deep dive into my past.
