Does anyone out there have experience renewing their Romanian passports from abroad? I just applied to renew my expired passport at the consulate in NYC. I already have tickets to travel back to Romania on Dec. 23. The consulate told me I "might" get the passport in time, but I couldn't get a clear answer--some friends renewed their passports from here in the past few years and said they got their new ones in anywhere from 1-3 weeks. But online it says it can take up to 3 months or more! So just wanted to see if anyone else has any experience they can share? Thank you so much!
