    How soon can I get my passport when applying. I'm wanting to leave April 6th. Moms is sending me my birth certificate overnight tomorrow so that leaves me almost 10weeks. I will pay whatever to get it fast.

    It takes a few weeks to get it in the mail so start the process asap and you should be fine for April.

    In process of getting mine for my trip to Morocco, Africa. It is currently 3 weeks but if you pay more you can have it in 5 days. This is as of Jan. 14th. I do believe it takes longer when getting your passport through the post office than it does when you go through the state department. But the state department has a little bit more strict rules and payment methods.

    Per Dept of State's site:
    As of (Thursday January 15, 2009 ), we are processing routine applications in approximately 3 weeks from the time of application.

    Don't pay to have the rush service. When I got mine I sent it in 10 weeks prior to my trip. I was quoted 8 weeks turn around time at that point. So I figured that I had a 2-week cushion. Wrong.

    Due to the flood of passport applications it got bumped to 12 weeks. I called my state representative's office and explained my situation. Even gave them the names of my 2 friends who applied at the same time. From that initial call, I received my passport within 1 week. That is the way you go. Saves you money and that is what the office staff of your representative is for. Good luck.
