I needed to pay the expedited service fee ($60) due to timing of our Spring Break trip and upcoming summer trip to Iceland.
Renewing my passport makes me nervous for a couple of reasons.
Our next trip is at the end of June. Even with the expedited service, the processing time is estimated at 2-3 weeks. This gives me just enough time to get new passport back in time for the trip.
I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on the mailbox over the next few weeks…
Here’s the bigger reason that I get nervous when renewing my passport.
When you renew your passport, you’re required to send in your most recent one. I don’t know about you, but I love getting new stamps in my passport. I enjoy looking through it from time to time. As I look at the stamps, it also brings back memories from those trips.
My expired passports end up being irreplaceable, treasured souvenirs which I’d hate to not get back.
Do you get nervous when renewing your passport? If so, is it for the same reasons that I have?
