  • Your passport has been expired more than 5 years.
  • You were younger than 16 when your last passport was issued.
  • You are applying for a child under the age of 16 even if they have had previous passport.
    *****SEE APPLYING FOR MINOR APPLICANTS SECTION BELOW FOR FURTHER INFORMATION**** 
  • You are eligible to renew by mail, but prefer to have the court process your passport.  
  • APPLICATIONS MUST BE TYPED OR IN BLACK INK AND SINGLE-SIDED.

APPLYING FOR MINOR APPLICANTS (UNDER AGE 16):  

  • Use Form DS-11 even if a renewal.
