Plan Ahead to Renew Your Passport!
The U.S. Department of State has encouraged U.S. citizens to submit applications about six month in advance. Routine renewals currently take about 18 weeks (12 weeks for processing and six weeks in the mail); expedited processing takes about 12 weeks (six weeks for processing and six weeks in the mail) and requires and additional $60 fee.
Reasons for longer wait times include increased demand (post-pandemic), State Department staffing shortages and U.S. Postal Service delays.
Welcome back! After physical, mental and social difficulties, the storm is passing and the sun is beginning to shine …
People are venturing out and venues are opening – travelers are looking for trip information. Shotime Productions put 11 trips “on hold” in 2020 and now 2022 is looking cautiously optimistic. With safety and common sense at the front of every decision, plans are solidifying slowly. Now, see three international trips that are ready for you to join. Our Steinway friends are planning to return to NYC in early December, but anyone can join that group. All major US cities are opening, show curtains are rising, and groups are excited to travel again.
