Did you know you don’t need your passport to be expired to renew it? If you want a new book or a new card, you can submit the necessary documents in exchange for new ones.
You can renew your expired passport if it has been issued within the last 15 years. The original passport cannot be stolen, damaged or lost; you must have been 16 or older when the passport was issued, and the passport must have been issued in your current name or you must provide legal proof of a name change.
If none of these fit, you can apply in person using Form DS-11.
Otherwise, you can renew your passport by mail using the Form DS-82. All the conditions mentioned above must be checked to apply for renewal by mail. If you fail to meet all the above statements and meet only some of them, you must apply in person using the same form.
