Passport Renewal Instructions
Passport Renewal Checklist: Adults only!
IMPORTANT: Only Adult Passports issued when the applicant
was 16 or older are eligible for renewal as long as the passport
is undamaged and less than 5 years expired. Minor passports
(issued at 15 years old and under) cannot be renewed.
It is considered a new minor passport each time until the applicant is 16 or older,
when they must then apply for a new adult passport.
