Renewing a Passport

For information on renewing a current passport, please visit the website

To renew a passport without going through an acceptance facility read the following information:

  • If renewing a passport that was issued less than 15 years ago, form *DS-82 is needed. Make sure “yes” can be answered to all of the questions on the front of the application before submitting to the U.S. Department of State. Failure to do so will result in the U.S. Department of State returning the application unprocessed.
  • If the applicant is unable to answer “yes” to all of the questions, the applicant is required to renew through an Acceptance Facility and submit a DS-11 application.

*Please note, DS-82 applications must be mailed to the U.S. Department of State by the applicant. Acceptance Facilities are not authorized to accept these applications.
