How long does it take now to obtain a passport now if you bring it in person to a passport office and not mailed to Ottawa with the increased demand? The last time(5 years ago) I had my passport renewed it was ready in about a week. How long is the wait at the office to speak with an officer to check identification and start the application process. I plan to be using the office at the Scarbough Town Centre. I have a doctors appointment in mid April and will get him to sign the forms then. I will need my passport for my trip to Europe mid June. I am gving myself enough time?
