How to Renew Your Passport
For those who have previously applied for a U.S. passport and have determined your passport issued within the last 15 years, is under current name, not damaged (mutilated, lost, stolen) and you were at least 16 when you got it? Then you can renew by mail by downloading the DS-82 form form online.
- Don’t be a procrastinator and renew before six months of expiration
- Gather all important supportive documents if there is a name change (a marriage certificate or divorce decree).
- Get an approved passport color photo 2 x 2 inches (51 x 51 mm)
Please note that as of November 1, 2016 glasses are no longer permitted. See Photo Requirements.
