Passport renewal at Atlanta
Hi all,

I would like to know what are my options to expedite this process. I submitted passport on mar 29th to ckgs and right now it has been under process for decision making at EMBASSY for more than a week since march 1st. I have tickets booked to india on May 3rd. I was wondering if this is a difficult situation to obtain passport as per the timelines. I heard that the process has been expedited recently through ckgs. Would love to hear your opinions if anyone submitted and got the passport from atlanta.

Thanks!
Manasa

Passport got in three business days
I am very happy , still couldn't believe that I got the passport in three business days from Houston consulate in a normal process with three miscellaneous services requests (signature change, appearance change and mother name correction).

Applied passport on March 22 and passport was ready on March 27th. In the middle, I had to sent the passport application form again as the signature was missing on it.

No response received from CGISF
Its already been more than 2 weeks that my passport application is "Under Process" at the Embassy. Now, I am wondering if the status would change just within next few days(within 3 weeks) or not.
I am already afraid after reading others experiences of not having received even till 2 months.
Also, I have tried mailing quite a many times to the CGISF regarding my urgent need of the new passport. They do reply back but don't really do anything to expedite the process.

The status at CKGS site shows pending at Embassy for decision making. It has been more than 5 weeks already. We have tickets to India on April 5th. Does anyone know how to expedite it?
