USC Passports v. Foreign Passports
 
Does anyone know how long does a USC have to wait to get their passports? My friend wants to visit Canada (NOT ME!) and he went to get his passport yesterday but they told him he won't have it in time to make his trip.

Now, if I remember correctly, I went and got my Dominican passport the very same day. Is it different for a USC than from those born abroad?

I waited two months for the Hong Kong passport and a month for the british passport. Because they have to ship my documents back and make the passports over there. You know the ones with the fancy biometric thingy, they also renewed my ID.

My grandpa just got his passport card in the mail today. It took about two weeks. It was the passport card though, not the book. I don't know if times would vary.

Wait, so you have a passport from Britain but you cannot live in Britain, what a scam.

Before 1997, most people in Hong Kong can get a British oversea passport. But after that everyone get a Hong Kong Chinese special region passport. Those passport are only good in Hong Kong, we can't live in neither Britain or China which is bullsh*t.

Why does he require a passport to visit Canada?Unless it is by AIR a Birth Certificate and Driver's license would be more than suffice if driving across.

The typical timeline for a US passport is 2-4 weeks.

Thanks everyone.

Now what I find odd is that everyone is reporting a certain waiting period before you get the passports. How come I got it the very same day? Hmmm

it depends on many factors to manufacture a passport. Whether or not passports are bio metric, pre-made or if they must verify any additional information.
