Eligibility for US passport renewal

Before diving into the renewal process, find out if you’re eligible to renew your passport in the United States. Here are the criteria for renewing your passport:

  • Be 16 years or older.

  • Have your recent passport (even if it has expired) in your possession.

  • Ensure your recent passport is in good condition.

  • Your passport wasn’t reported lost or stolen.

  • The names on your passport should match your current ID (or you can provide legal documents for a name change).

  • Have a passport issued within the last 15 years.

If you don’t meet these criteria, you will need to book an in-person appointment online and apply for a new passport at a passport agency. However, if you fulfill the abovementioned requirements, you can enjoy the convenience of renewing your passport using the postal service.

Where to renew your passport in the United States

For those who are eligible, you can schedule an appointment to submit your renewal application in person or choose the option of submission by mail. The latter is the easiest way, allowing you to get a renewed passport without leaving home.

You must complete and print the DS-82 form and gather all the required documents, including birth certificate or citizenship documents, depending on your situation. Purchase two USPS envelopes (one to mail the renewal application and a second prepaid one that will be used to mail your new passport back to you).

Place your passport application, current passport, supporting documents, prepaid envelope, and banker’s check for the renewal fee. Finally, mail your application to the designated passport service address.
