Going to renew a US passport has historically been difficult. 

but that became even more difficult during the COVID-19 pandemic, when long waits reached 18 weeks.  

The US Department of State stated that it has diminished its backlog of approximately 2 million applications.

but still guesstimates that it will take eight to eleven weeks to renew a passport, not including mailing times. 

A current internet passport renewal programme may abbreviate the wait time by making the process much easier.  

The Department of State launched a pilot programme for online passport renewals on Aug. 2 

based on an executive order signed by President Joe Biden in December 2021, with 25,000 open slots that were filled by Aug. 12.
