Generally, 5-8 weeks are needed for processing.
Forms are available online, at major post offices, and at some libraries. You may have the required 2x2 photo taken at a local drug store.
Be sure that your passport does not expire within six months of your scheduled return date. Some airlines will not allow you to board if this criteria is not met.
To the brides: The name on your reservation, airline tickets,and passport must all match, so you must make all travel arrangements in your maiden name. Upon returning from your honeymoon, you can obtain a new social security card, driver's license, and updated passport once you have a copy of your marriage certificate. If your original passport is less than twelve months old, there will be no fee for the change made.
