New U.S. Adult Passport
A U.S. Adult Passport is valid for 10 years. A New U.S. Adult Passport is required for passport applicants 16 and older who fall into one of the following categories:
1. This is your first time applying for a passport.
2. Your previous passport was issued when you were under the age of 16.
3. Your passport was issued more than 15 years ago.
4. Your expired passport is not in your possession.
5. Your current valid passport is damaged.
6. Your valid passport is lost or stolen.
New U.S. Minor Passport
A U.S. Minor Passport is valid for 5 years. Every minor, no matter their age, must have a valid passport to travel overseas. A minor under the age of 16 must submit their application in person with their “legal” parent(s) or guardian(s). If both parents or guardians cannot be present, the minor must have documentation for parental consent. A minor the age of 17 can apply for a passport with ONE parent or guardian present, if they have their own proof of identification.
U.S. Passport Renewal
A U.S. Passport Renewal is valid for 10 years. A Passport Renewal is required if your current passport has expired. To make this application, you must be in possession of your expired passport, and it must be undamaged. This undamaged passport must have been issued to you when you were over the age of 16 and no more than 15 years ago. If you have changed your legal name since your expired passport was issued, you must be able to document it to submit an application for passport renewal.
Name Change Passport
A Name Change is required if your current passport was issued within the past one (1) year and you have since changed your legal name. If this passport was issued more than one year ago, you must apply for a Passport Renewal. If this passport is damaged, however, you will have to apply for a New Adult Passport rather than renewal.
Lost or Stolen Passport
To replace a lost or stolen passport, your missing passport must still be valid. If the missing passport has expired, you will need to apply for a New U.S. Adult Passport.
A secondary passport is issued at the discretion of the U.S. Department of State to frequent travelers that do not have time to acquire travel visas between trips. Additionally, a secondary passport may be issued for security reasons.
Add Travel Visa Pages
You may apply to add travel visa pages if your current valid passport has run out of pages and the passport expiration date is at least one (1) year away. Otherwise, you must apply for Passport Renewal.
