I’m a Brit living in the US, so everything was done from overseas. The first mistake I made was sending my old passport Registered mail through United States Postal service. Application submitted: April 23rd Application received: April 23rd Documents received: June 12th Application Processing: June 15th Application Approved: July 8th Passport Printed And Sent: July 9th I spent multiple times on the phone which didn’t do a lot. I made a lot more headway filling out the form as the day after I sent two messages it was approved. Good luck and thanks to everyone for there updates.
