Renew a Passport

Should you renew your Passport in person?

Yes, If you:

  • Were under the age of 16 when your previous passport was issued; or 
  • Lost your previous passport or it was damaged or stolen; or 
  • Have a previous passport that expired more than 5 years ago. 

Renewal applications for children 16 and under require submission of previous passport as well as an official state-issued birth certificate.

Applicants who will renew in person will complete the DS-11 form.

Should you renew your Passport by mail?  

Yes, if you do not meet 1 of the 3 conditions listed above.  You will renew your passport by mail even if you have a name change since your previous passport was issued. 

Applicants who will renew by mail will complete the DS-82 form.  All applicants who possess a previous passport will submit that passport as proof of citizenship; a birth certificate is not required.

Each type of application form is available at the Passport Facility. 

Applicants who fit the criteria to renew by mail are welcome to come in for photos.

Please visit the U.S. Department of State website for printable application forms and further information.
