    As soon as you know you will be traveling abroad would be ideal but if you decided to wait you should do it at least 3 months in advance. Sometimes the process can be long or it may take a while for the passport to be sent to you, so earlier is always better. It's better to be safe than sorry when it comes to getting your passport because without it, you’ll be stuck in the states.
