Passport Renewal at CKGS Chicago
Hello Everyone,

I have applied for passport renewal (Normal Process) with Change of Appearance/Signature on 07/15/2019 and received a new passport today. It took a total of 7 days to receive the passport in hand if it wasn't for week-end in between it would have been 5 days only. I followed the document checklist on CKGS portal and made sure everything was in place as per the specifications provided and shipped it through UPS.

Below is my timeline for passport renewal.
