How long does it take to get a passport? Possibly going to Costa Rica for two weeks.

It's a school trip and I'll get a full class credit to study abroad for ten days. It's five and a half months away.

Start right away. You might get it. I've heard summer is the busiest time.

6-8 weeks. Unless you pay to expedite and that's about 3-4 weeks.

Google State Department/Passport Application and click on the .gov website and you'll get all of the info you need.

Start the process now. When our dd went to France on a school trip we were told 6-8 weeks but it came back in about 4.

I'd apply for your passport now. It could take 6-8 weeks; shorter times are common. Some states have passport offices that have same day service, but the passports are more expensive. It was a big headache when we did the same day service for my sister.

Just get it asap. It's better to have it ready to go than waiting and not having it ready when you do need it. Costs more too when you rush.
