I knew something would happen...
      #1665871 - 10/06/15 01:01 PM (71.185.230.35)

Our passports expired last month. In early September we had new photos taken and mailed in the required form and payment. My wife has gotten her new one and the next day her old one was returned. Just this morning I got an e-mail from them stating that the picture I submitted was unusable because my glasses' frame obscured my eye area. Now I have get a new photo taken and mail it along with a copy of the e-mail. I called and was told that I had enough time, but I'm worried. We leave on Nov. 13, and I don't want to reschedule. Please, someone reassure me.

No worries

Let us start a pool
My bet if you mailed it today it will be in your hand 10/21

Hopefully everything will turn out well for you and your trip will not be interrupted. We may even get to meet you and your lovely wife this trip!

If they gave you specific instructions, I'd follow them to a tee and do the transaction via Federal Express or certified mail and I'm sure you'll be fine. Doesn't the post office have an overnight mail option, too?

They were able to do them in a ten day turn around when the rules first changed when the situation was urgent due to imminent travel dates.

You'll be find, I'm sure. (I hope?)

Just curious, in Canada you don't take the pic with glasses.
In the US, do you have passport photo's with glasses on?

Not that it helps but I just had some passport photos taken (although not for a passport) and they were very specific about not wearing glasses.

Hope everything goes smooth. Get on it right away.

Correct. My wife found that out in April when we crossed from Canada back to the US.

Try Walgreen's. They'll do the pictures while you wait. Just takes a few minutes.

Thanks, everyone, for the encouragement. I just had new photos taken, sans glasses, and will send it tomorrow - certified, return receipt requested. Elizabeth, that sounds wonderful. I'll PM you after we're there.
