Renewing your passport?
U.S. passports expire every five to ten years. You can renew your passport by mail by filling out Form DS-82, found here, if your most recent passport:
- is undamaged and can be submitted with your application
- was issued when you were age 16 or older
- was issued within the last 15 years; and
- was issued in your current name or you can legally document your name change
If any of the above statements do not apply to you, you must Apply in Person. Please note that those under 15 must apply in person for both first time applicants and renewals.
Fees: For adults (age 16 or older) renewing your passport will cost $110. Minors 15 and under are $80 to renew.
