Heaven helps those who help them self, this can only benefit those who have chosen to make things easier for them by renewing their U.S. passport early, This you will agree with me that it’s not only convenient but in line with the U.S. Department of State, which suggests renewing at least nine months prior to expiration. If your passport expires around 24 weeks, there are possibilities that most international airlines could deny you boarding, and some countries will refuse entry. To be on the safe side we suggest you renew your U.S passport application in the standard way which is processed at least within2 months except you are hoping to use the express option which is also available, but bear in mind that services rendered on express purpose are more expensive than the standard way express application takes roughly 2weeks.
Required Items Needed Are
Two (2) passport photos
Submit with you a legal-sized envelope
Payment of renewal fees
Evidence of name change (if name was changed)
Form DS-82: Application for a U.S. Passport by Mail
Make sure you go through the state of your current passport to be guided. finish the revitalization procedure by mail only if your present passport is still in good shape, was issued on or after your 16th birthday, your legal name has not changed, or if you have a marriage certificate or issued court order verifying a legal name change. Settle all name change and make sure you are cleared else that could mess every process up.
Fill all necessary boxes required from your Form DS-82: Application for a U.S. Passport by Mail. This form can be obtained from any post office and it can also be obtained from the U.S. Department of State’s website. You are expected to use black pen in filling your form DS-82.
You are to acquire fresh passport photos to post alongside the application. Make sure that the size of the photos acceptable which is a 2-by-2 inches, try as much as possible to have a clear image with a good lighting and a white background. Affix one photo to the application in the designated area. After all try to staple each in the appropriate way.
When submitting your document you are to use an acceptable sized and safe wrapping envelope to send your documents. Position the filled DS-82 form together with an affixed passport photo, passport fees and additional passport photo in the envelope. Don’t fold the application or photos.we are almost done hold on…..
In the case where you are married, name change will be required therefore include a copy of your court order or marriage certificate and make sure your new name is clearly visible on the submitted document to avoid disappointment.
All fees are to be paid to the U.S. Department of State. Payments are expected to either be by check or money order. If sending a money order, procure only a distinguishable tool, just like those issued by the U.S. Postal Service, your payment should be in check best advice.
The reason why we are insisting that all mails should be sent using a confirm-able method is just for safety precaution. Give a time frame of four (4) to six (6) weeks for standard processing.
For those who want to use the express method, you are to send a separate check or money in the amount of $60 for express processing. When sending your document give it a noticeable mark with a write-up written as “EXPEDITE” it should be written with a black pen. As mentioned earlier express method takes two (2) to three (3) weeks.
If your Passport is damaged, establish contact with your passport agency, you have an undocumented name change or if you are renewing a passport that was issued when you were much younger than our age now.
These are what you need to take along with you: current passport, two new passport photos and applicable fees to the appointment. Take a check or money, since not all regional passport agencies accept cash. Ensure that you pay directly to the U.S. Department of State.
