  • Routine renewals: Use form DS-82 and the fee is USD130.  You should follow the below requirements if your most recent U.S. passport:
      • Is undamaged and can be presented with your application;
      • Was issued when you were age 16 or older;
      • Was issued within the last 15 years;
      • Was issued in your current name or you can legally document your name change; and
      • Was an ordinary (tourist) passport and had a full validity period of 10 years, or was an adult diplomatic or other no-fee passport that had a full validity period of less than 10 years
    • Please present the following at your appointment:
      • Completed passport application form DS-82
      • Your current U.S. passport, valid or expired
      • One photo 2 x 2 inches (51 x 51 mm) taken on a white background within the last six months; no glasses
      • Fee of USD130; cash (USD or local currently equivalent) and credit card payments are accepted
    • First-time applications and special renewals: Use form DS-11 and the fee is USD165.  You should follow the below requirements if:
      • your previously issued ordinary (tourist) passport had a validity period of less than 10 years; or
      • your previously issued adult diplomatic or other no-fee passport had a validity period less than the maximum allowed for the passport type; or
      • this application is for your first U.S. passport; or
      • this application is for your first renewal as an adult (age 16 or above); or
      • your previously issued passport was lost or stolen
    • Please present the following at your appointment:
      • Completed passport application form DS-11
      • Birth certificate:
        • Original or certified copy, if this is for your first U.S. passport
        • Copy, if this is for your first renewal as an adult (age 16 or above)
      • Your current U.S. passport, valid or expired, if applicable
      • One photo 2 x 2 inches (51 x 51 mm) taken on a white background within the last six months; no glasses
      • Fee of USD165; cash (USD or local currently equivalent) and credit card payments are accepted
    • Additional requirements for 16- and 17-year old applicants:
      • While a parent is not required to appear, these applicants must show awareness by at least one parent of the passport application. Often, the most expedient way to do this is to have one or both parents accompany the applicant.  More information is here.
      • Note that the fee for a first-time adult passport, or first-time renewal as an adult, is USD165 and form DS-11 must be used.
