How To Renew Your US Passport Online

  Passport renewal typically requires applicants to submit their applications through the mail. However, the US Department of State has been working to make the passport renewal process more accessible and streamlined, so it’s possible that online options have been introduced or expanded since then.
To renew your US passport, follow these general steps:


  1. Check Eligibility: You can renew your passport by mail if your most recent passport meets certain criteria. Ensure that your passport is not damaged, issued when you were age 15 or younger, issued more than 15 years ago, or your name has changed since it was issued without legal documentation.
     2. You have to Gather Required Documents: You will need the following:
  • Your most recent US passport.
  • Passport photo: You will need to get a new passport-sized photo taken that meets the US State Department’s requirements.
  • Passport Renewal Application Form: DS-82. This form can be downloaded from the US Department of State website or you can fill it out online and then print it.
  • Payment: You will need to pay the appropriate fee for passport renewal.
     3. Complete the Application Form: If you choose to fill out the form online, you can do so on the US Department of State website and then print it. If you prefer, you can also download the form and fill it out by hand.
     4. Get Passport Photo: Obtain a passport-sized photo that meets the US State Department’s specifications. Many pharmacies, post offices, and photo centers offer passport photo services.
     5. Calculate Fees: Check the US Department of State website for the current passport renewal fee. Payment can be made through a check or money order payable to “U.S. Department of State.”
     6. Mail Your Application: Place all the required documents, including your most recent passport, the DS-82 form, passport photo, and payment in an envelope. Use trackable mail to send the application to the appropriate address, which will be listed on the DS-82 form.
It’s essential to verify the latest procedures and requirements on the official US Department of State website, as things may have changed or been updated since my last knowledge update in 2021.
If you need your passport more urgently or have specific circumstances, it is advised to consult the official US Department of State website or contact the National Passport Information Center for further assistance.
