So right before the country shut down my wife and I were getting ready to send in our renewal of our passports for our upcoming cruise late August. However, the department is down and they have a warning to not submit until they are back open (who knows when that will be). My question is this. Should I secure other forms for our Bahamian Cruise out of PC on 8/31 that would work? Is that just the original birth certificate and anything else? I can always expedite my passport if that time comes. It scares me to send it in while they are closed or limited work being done and just having it sit there. What is everyone's thoughts (and no it's not a question of if the cruise will happen or not?
