Lets see now, I've been to the Post Office 3 times to submit my "completed" paperwork for a passport, and on each occasion, there are at least 10 - 15 people ahead of me. The problem being, the PO only has one person processing the paperwork, and each process takes at least 15 - 20 minutes, this is very frustrating. Will the PO ever "get with the times"........ugggghhhhh

I believe that if you have an expired passport and passport photographs, you are able to mail them in yourself and stop the frustration. Check on it. I have done it.

You only have to go to the post office if this is a first time passport or if it expired over 15 years ago. Can renew by mail.

Try to go during "off hours". If you go during or around your lunch hour it will always be crowded.

The PO on South Blvd gets extremely crowded, however if I hit it around 4pm, its not bad...

We went first thing on a Saturday morning when they were just opening - was very quick and the line was only a few people deep when we left. Bon voyage! BTW, this was in Mint Hill.

The PO in Mooresville 28117 (I think it's called the LKN location) in Morrison Plantation on Williamson Rd. makes appts for passports. I did it with my son, had his photos taken there too. Quick & easy! His passport arrived 13 days later too.
