Most adult passports that have not been expired for more than 5 years are eligible for a renewal by mail. These renewal applications are submitted by the applicant and are not processed by an acceptance facility. Renewal forms (DS-82) are available at our facility, and passport photos may be taken on site. See the DOS website for more information about renewals.
Those who are renewing an adult passport that was issued in the last 15 years can use the DS-82 form and are eligible to submit their renewal by mail. See the DOS website for more information on which form to use.
