Make an appointment online. Office opens 6:30am.
It takes FOREVER just to claim your authenticated/red ribboned documents.. 😤 3 hours to say the least! 😖
Almost everyone has no sense of customer service. They shout and talk to people in a not-so-friendly manner. The only friendly employee i saw was the white-haired lady in the processing area.
Scam City Alert: you don't need brown envelopes with plastic when applying for or renewing your passport. Vendors outside are yelling that you do.. Just bring the requirements on the list.
For first time passport applicants (online appointment): print all of the pages inlcuded in the pdf file of the application form. The checker will ask you to hand it over to them.
