Passport?

I'm most likely going to Africa for January. I've never been out of this country (besides to Sarnia, Ontario twice); I've never been on a plane. I have to get a passport by September, but neither I nor my parents have any clue where you get one from. Someone help.

I think you can get one at the dmv where you'd go to renew your driver's license.

I have no idea about getting passports in the US, but I just wanted to ask where in Africa you're going to visit?

As far as I know you get it at the Post Office...that's where I got mine from. There are only certain post offices that offer that service so you'll have to check.

Yes, it is usually the main post office in the city that you live. I should have renewed mine, but I let it expire.

go get a passport photo taken at a picture place and then go to the post office. Maybe print these forms http://travel.state.gov/download_applications.html

I think I got mine from the courthouse when I got it done. The best idea is to use the link ABEL posted and find the place closest to you.

We're going to Tanzania for a month. I believe the program is titled "The Church's Influence on Development". How I understand it is that in Tanzania there is no seperation of church and state and since like 80% of the populartion live in rural communities, the church is usually the center of the community. We're studying/observing church programs in the towns (I think they're all along the northern part of the country). I know someone who went last year and she said they visit tons of places, even AIDS clinics, and stay with host families and host churches. We also get to see Mt. Kilimanjaro, cross Lake Victoria in an overnight boat ride, and spend 4 days on a safari on the Serengeti.

I want to go to Mozambique and re-enact the migration of lemurs by floating over to Madagascar on a log.

I used the passport links above to renew my passport. I had my photos taken at a local camera shop. It took the State Dept. 6 weeks to process mine. I got my first passport from the US post office. It was no big deal. Either way you will have your passport in enough time prior to your trip. Enjoy your exotic trip to Africa. I think that is fantastic.
