Not sure if this is the right place but...
My US passport (and only passport) expires middle of November this year and I was thinking of preempting the issue by getting it renewed NOW before I need it in May for travels, or this summer, or this fall. As in, now is the best time for the rest of the year (assuming work doesn't want to send me somewhere like ROI or Brussels, but I don't think so)
Does anyone know roughly how long this takes? Website says about a month - is this accurate? Has there been any impact on the system from recent events back in the US?
Thankfully my EEA permit was mailed separate so I at least have that to wave at someone if they need something official, but I won't have a clear block of time after May 1 to sit and wait around a month or more for this.
