Q: How can I renew an adult passport?

Adults who are eligible to renew by mail do not need to appear in person. For detailed instructions and the renewal form visit the State Department's passport renewal page.  The basic steps are as follows:

  2. Fill out Form DS-82, Renewal Application for Eligible Individuals
  3. Submit your most recent U.S. Passport
  4. Include name change documents (if applicable)
  5. Provide a passport photo
  6. Calculate renewal fee
  7. Mail the completed application (Form DS-82, with most recent passport, photo, and check or money order for renewal fee)

Regular processing is currently taking 10-12 weeks.  Expedited processing (additional fee) is taking 4-6 weeks. (Your expired passport and name change documents will be returned to you in a separate envelope.)
