Firstly, if you live in any foreign country (except Canada) you must renew your passport by visiting the US consulate or embassy nearest to your place of residence. For those residing in the US or Canada, keep reading: 

Renewing a US passport For people residing in Canada or the United States, you can conveniently submit your passport renewal forms by mail to:

National Passport Processing,
P.O. Box 13349, Philadelphia,
PA 19101-3349.

In this case, you must use form DS-82 which you can download from the US Department of State's website.

Applying for a new American passport The site also has a lot of useful information about your renewal application that you might find useful, so I'd recommend having a quick read.

The application fee is currently $67 and this must be paid at the time of application. If you are mailing in your request, you must include a cheque for this amount payable to the Department of State.
You must also include two passport photos, as well as your expired (or soon-to-expire passport).

If you are in a rush to get your new passport, the State Department website also has an expedited service (details of which are on their site). There is also a useful breakdown of application times. Very handy if you're planning to travel in the near future!

The United States of America has certain specified rules and regulations that need to be adhered to by anyone seeking passport assistance. This important document is only issued by the Passport Services Department of the US Department of State. This department holds the exclusive right to grant or issue, renew or verify a US passport. The department is accessible at the following address:
National Passport Processing,
PO Box: 13349,
PA-19101 3349

A passport is usually renewed when the existing document's expiry date is drawing near. A passport is very crucial, especially to those who travel on work extensively. The document serves as an identity proof and a proof of residence. A US passport can be renewed either online or offline. Online, the Passport Renewal Application form needs to be downloaded from the dedicated website The form should be duly filled, with all the information documented within the spaces provided and submitted by or before the date specified.

Offline, the Passport Renewal Form needs to be accessed from the National Passport Processing office address specified above. The DS-82 application form should be duly filled and signed and submitted before the date of submission specified by the issuing authorities. The fee applicable is $67 and is paid to the US Department of State. If there is an urgent requirement for the passport, the application form should specify 'expedited service'.

In my state, WI, you can file for a passport at the U.S. Post Office. It is mailed from there.  Our post office takes pictures but you can also have a picture taken at copy shops like Kinko's or other places. If you are renewing, they usually want you to surrender your old one so it can't be used illegally, but you can always state it was lost to keep it  as a memento (with the country stamps).      Now with the change in laws,  the time taken to get your passport is a lot longer with more people needing one now.

Passports can only be renewed if your most recent passport:

  • Is undamaged and can be submitted 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.

Wouldn't the immigration office be more appropriate for non-US passport holders?
