Choose a Passport Service Option in Step 1 and continue...

Step 1.

For US Passport Renewal

Choose this option if you can answer “yes” to all of the following questions:
  • Is your passport is still valid or did your passport expire less than 5 years ago?
  • Is your passport in good condition and is in your possession?
  • Was your passport issued in the U.S.A?
  • Were you 16 years of age or older when your last U.S.A passport was issued? Was it valid for 10 years?
  • Your Passport and the 6 Month Validity Rule
  • How to Replace a Damaged Passport

New or First Time Passport

IS THIS THE RIGHT OPTION FOR YOU?

 Choose this option if:

  • Lost Passport & Emergency Passport

    IS THIS THE RIGHT OPTION FOR YOU?

    Choose this option if your most recent passport is lost, and needs to be replaced. Your lost U.S. passport must also meet one of the following requirements:

    • Your lost U.S. passport is still valid
    • Your lost U.S. passport expired less than 5 years ago or you are unsure if it expired less than 5 years ago
  • Second Valid US Passport

    IS THIS THE RIGHT OPTION FOR YOU?

    Choose this option if it is NECESSARY for you to have (2) U.S. passports at once. You must be able to submit your most recent, valid, undamaged passport. Some examples of situations where a traveler might need a second valid passport include:

    • Travelers who have to travel internationally while they are applying for a visa to another country.
    • Travelers who have stamps in their passport from a country that will result in denied entry to other countries. For example, many Middle Eastern countries will deny a passport that has received a stamp from Israel.

What do I do with these documents?

First: Download, Complete and Print them.  Then see if you need to…

VISIT A PASSPORT ACCEPTANCE AGENT  if you are applying for a New Passport.

Once you have collected the documents listed, you will need to take them to a post office or county/city clerk to get the application executed by a “passport acceptance agent.” To find a Passport Acceptance Agent near you, just enter in your zip code. We suggest calling ahead to the Acceptance Facility to confirm that the details on this website are accurate.

What will the passport acceptance agent do with my documents?

The agent will…

  • Administer an oath
  • Execute your DS-11
  • Instruct you to sign your DS-11
  • Place application materials in an envelope. Note: If the agent does not want to put ALL of the application materials into the envelope (such as the copy of ID), that is OK, but it is important that you send them to us anyway.
  • The agent will then put their official seal on the envelope

Please note that if the Passport Acceptance agent prompts you to write a check for an amount other than $170, $200 or $90, the check will not be accepted, and your application will be delayed until a replacement check is provided.

Multiple applications: If you are getting more than 1 application sealed, it is important that each application is in its own sealed envelope.  Multiple applications in 1 sealed envelope may be denied.

Helpful Hints for Passport Renewal

It is important that you do not leave any fields on the US Passport renewal form blank. If it is necessary to cross something out, strike through the word(s) 1 time and initial next to it. If you have several cross outs, it is best to start over with a new passport renewal application. The information you provide should match the information on your current passport.

Passport Name Change

If your name has changed since your last passport was issued, you will need to include an ORIGINAL document such as a marriage certificate or divorce decree that proves your name was legally changed. You will also need to include a copy of a valid photo ID that shows your new, changed name.  If you do not have government issued ID or your ID is not 6 months old, you will need to submit supplemental ID.
Original documents will be returned. If you have not legally changed your name, make sure you list your name(s) the same way that you did on your previous passport. To prevent delays sign all documents the same; if your signature varies, it could delay your service.
