The importance of an up-to-date passport
Keeping your passport current is vital for smooth travel and avoiding complications, as some countries and airlines deny entry if your passport expires in less than six months.
An expired passport can disrupt plans, so try to always be aware of your document’s validity period. A valid passport is essential for emergency travel and a key ID for official matters.
If your passport expired and you’re 18 or older you can easily renew it through us. Remember that first-time renewals involve different forms and may require extra documentation, like a birth certificate; however, it is unlikely that you will require your parents' marriage certificate, etc.
On the other hand, subsequent renewals usually have a faster processing time and may require fewer documents, making the experience more streamlined.
How to renew your passport after you turn 18?
It’s easy to renew your adult passport with our passport services. Applicants just need to fill out the form online, receive all documents via mail, and then deliver them to the post office. Here is a detailed breakdown of the passport application steps:
Step 1: Fill out the online DS-82 form with your information, such as name, address, and birth date.
Step 2: Attach your recent passport photos to the online form. They must show your full face and be front view, high-resolution images. You can use our passport photo service if you don’t have current ones.
Step 3: Pay the U.S. Government fee and the iVisa fee using a credit card, debit card, Paypal, or Venmo to make the payment.
Note: You DO NOT need to submit your current passport or old passport to us.
Step 4: Receive your passport renewal kit, follow the instructions, gather the supporting documents, and take your completed passport renewal package to the nearest mailbox or post office, then mail it to the nearest passport acceptance facility or passport office.
Step 5: Track your renewal application status with our frequent updates. Get your new passport and travel!
