    Causatives (Get and made)

    Hi,
    I would like to know that whether we can use "get and made" both in same sentence or not.Do the following sentences make sense?

    1) I need to get a report made.
    2) How can I get my passport made quickly?
    3) I need to get a machine like this made.

    Thanks

    2) sounds like you're having a passport counterfeited.

    I thought the same as Rover. We get a passport "issued".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
