How Long Does It Take To Renew a Passport?

The timeframe to renew a passport via routine passport renewal services is typically 7 to 12 weeks excluding shipping.  The timeframe starts when the documents reach the US Post office or Passport Agency.

If you are traveling soon and 7 to 12 weekswon't work then you have a few options.

Expediting via the Expedited Fee.  When you apply, you can pay an additional $60 fee to the Post Office and that reduces the timeframe to 4 to 6 weeks, not including shipping.

Expediting via.the Passport Agency.  If you can prove that you are traveling within 14 days and can get an appointment at one of the 28 Passport Agencies, then you can apply for your passport renewal at the Passport Agency directly at your appointment time.   This typically means you can have your passport inside of a week.

Expediting via an authorized passport renewal service.  If you need your passport a bit faster, then we can assist travelers who need assistance in expediting and can get a passport within 3 business days.

How to Renew a US Passport

There are four items need when thinking about how to renew your US passport.

Passport Photos

The US Passport Agency requires that passport photos taken on a white background and free of items such as glasses and scarfs.  Your passport photo should also be taken within the six months prior to your passport application. Watch the exposure on the photo, as that is a common issue we have when applying for a passport.

Your US Passport Renewal Application (DS82)

Renewing a passport means completing and applying for a US passport again.  The passport renewal application asks for information about yourself, your address, your prior passport information, your family, and where you are traveling to if in a hurry to get a passport.  We recommend you complete the DS82 passport renewal application online, print it on white paper, full size and ensure you sign the application.  Make sure to sign the application and double check for any typos on the application as those errors will cause delays.

Your US Passport

You'll need to surrender your passport as part of the application process.  So, you must have your passport in your possession and it must be valid to be renewed (an adult passport issued within the past 15 years) and must not be damaged.  Don't worry, you typically get your old passport back when your new passport is issued.
