The US Passport Processing is broken down into two main processes. These are based on your age, and whether or not you have ever held a passport.

How to renew your US passport

Let’s begin with a renewal of your adult US passport. If you’re over 18 years old and can answer these questions, you may be eligible to renew your adult passport.

  • You have your US passport in your possession.
  • Other than normal wear and tear, your passport isn’t damaged. Pay special attention to the information page of your passport.
  • This passport was issued at the age of 16.
  • The passport was issued in the last 15 years.
  • You can either provide documentation proving that your name has changed or the passport was issued under your current name.

You are eligible to RENEW your US passport if you satisfy the five above conditions. These are the requirements to renew your passport:

  1. Your current US passport must meet the above requirements.
  2. You will need to fill out and sign a DS82 Passport Renewal Application.
  3. Two new US passport photos must be obtained that meet the requirements. The photos should have been taken within the last 6 months.
  4. For a passport book, you will need to pay $130 or $190 to the US Department of State. For passport renewal costs, please click here

  • You can send your passport application as routine processing directly to renew your passport. The process usually takes between 8 and 10 weeks
  • A Post Office can arrange an appointment and will accept your passport renewal request and submit it to the regional passport agency. It can take between 8 and 10 weeks for this to complete.
  • You can book an appointment at a Passport Agency close to you. This process requires that you appear in person at Passport Agency.
  • A trusted passport expeditor such as ours can be enlisted. This usually means that you have to send your documents in or appear at the local office.

Once your passport has been processed, you will receive your new US passport back in the mail. Now you can go on your trip!

How to get a new passport

If you are not eligible for the renewal of your passport, you will need to apply to get a new US passport. This applies to minor/children applicants, lost passports or damaged passports, and first-time passport holders. These are the new requirements for passport applications:

  1. Proof of US citizenship will be required. This usually takes the form of a certificate of naturalization or a certified birth certificate.
  2. A valid Drivers License must be current and not less than six months old.
  3. Complete a DS-11 Passport Application. This document should not be signed yet.
  4. Two new US passport photos must be obtained that meet the requirements. The photos must have been taken within the last 6 months.

  6. You will need to supply an itinerary and a letter if you use a private passport expediting company.

After you have collected the 6 required documents, the applicant must make an appointment at the local Passport Acceptance Facility. This is usually a local post office.

If the applicant is 18 years old, they can apply for their application. If the applicant is under 16 years old, both parents must accompany them. Only one parent must go with the applicant and grant permission.
