Applicants Who Have Had A Previous U.S. Passport

DS-82: Application For Passport By Mail (PDF, 717KB)

(For Renewals Only. Total renewal fee is $110) This form should be used for renewing a previously issued U.S. passport either by mail, or in person at a Regional Passport Agency if you are traveling internationally, or need your passport for foreign visas within 14 days. For a list of Passport Agencies, including their addresses and automated appointment telephone numbers, please click here. There are four criteria for using this form. Please use the following checklist to see if you are eligible to apply with a DS-82:

  1. I can submit my most recent passport;
  2. I was at least 16 years old when my most recent passport was issued;
  3. I was issued my most recent passport less than 15 years ago; NOTE: Instructions on the current application do not yet reflect this change. The form is scheduled to be replaced in the near future with one containing updated information, but the old form may continue to be used.
  4. I use the same name as on my most recent passport, OR since my passport was issued, I have had my name changed by marriage or court order and can submit proper documentation to reflect my name change; and
  5. It is undamaged.

If you answered NO to any of the four statements above...STOP! You cannot use form DS-82!!! You must apply on application form DS-11.

Note: The second page (back) of the DS-82 gives a phone number to call for inquiries. This number has changed. If you have a question about the application process or want to know the status of a pending application, please call the:
