If you are able to answer "YES" to the following:

I can submit my most recent U.S. passport book and/or U.S. passport card with the application.

I was at least 16 years old when my most recent U.S. passport book and/or card were issued.

            I was issued my most recent U.S. passport book and/or card less than 15 years ago.

The U.S. passport book and/or card that is being renewed has not been mutilated, damaged, lost, stolen or subsequently found.

            My U.S. passport has not been limited from the normal 10-year validity.

I use the same name as on my most recent U.S. Passport book and/or card -- or-- I have had my name changed by marriage or court order and can submit proper certified documentation to reflect my name change.

Please visit www.travel.state.gov for information on eligibility.

 

F.A.Q.

Can I get a status update on my passport?
You can check the status of your application 7-10 business days after you have applied for your passport. Status updates are available online or by calling the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778. You can also sign up for automatic email notifications about your passport status by going online to: https://passportstatus.state.gov/
We will not be able to provide more specific processing times or status updates at this time.
 
I can’t find my birth certificate, how can I get one?
To obtain your birth certificate, you must contact the County or State in which you were born. Please note that birth certificates must be original or certified copies including full parental information; short form abstracts, hospital certificates or birth “registrations” are not acceptable for a passport application. Some restrictions apply.

Can I pay cash or use credit card for my passport application fee?
No; the U.S. Department of State requires a personal check or money order only.  If you arrive without proper form of payment, we cannot accept your application. This applies to the passport fee only; you may use other forms of payment for the $35 acceptance fee.
