Planning your honeymoon or vacation to someplace outside of the US? Be sure your passport is current. And if it isn't, apply for a new one early!
Carolyn and Todd missed their Dominican Republic honeymoon after their April wedding because new passport laws have clogged the usual routine w/ more applicants than employees to process them. Even tho they submitted their paperwork three months ahead of time, their passports still didn't arrive in time! As of today, lawmakers have temporarily waived some of their passport requirements hoping to ease some of this travel frustration.
