2 questions, which I could not get answered after combing government websites
What’s the normal turnaround time for a passport renewal under non-exceptional circumstances? (no name change, expired less than 5 years, etc). I understand that it varies; I’m just looking for a fairly reliable ballpark.
Renewals can be “expedited” for an extra fee. However, the forms have no such blank for “expedite”. How am I supposed to submit the paperwork correctly to achieve expedited processing? (I am not close to one of the 13 in-person processing centers).
