Renew a Passport 


The U.S Department of State requires you to renew your passport by mail if it meets eligibility requirements. If your passport is eligible for renewal by mail, you cannot renew in our office. If your passport is not eligible for renewal by mail, follow the steps above. Your current passport can be used as proof of U.S citizenship as long as it is not damaged, altered or mutilated.
