SFO Passport Renewal Timeline
I applied for my passport renewal at SFO consulate though normal processing. It reached CKGS on Oct 22nd and it is with Indian Embassy since Oct 23rd and under process. It says the average processing time is 2-3 weeks. I need to travel to India on November 25th and want to know if I can get my passport before that.

Anyone having recent passport renewal experience at SFO? How much time are they taking? I need to book tickets but not sure if I will get the passport in time for sure. Any recent experience with SFO may help me.
