Passport Renewal applications are for U.S. citizens who already have held a valid adult passport. To apply as a renewal, the passport must be expired fewer than 5 years and be in good condition.
There is no such thing as "a little bit expired." If your passport expires before your flight, you won't be allowed on the plane. You'll need to renew it, and that means getting a new one. If you do need a passport renewal in a hurry, let us know. We can help.
A few things you should know about passport renewals:
Passport renewal applications take 4 to 6 weeks for standard processing, just like every other type of passport. However, as an authorized passport expediter, we help clients get passport renewals in as little as one or two days.
To renew passports that have expired within five years, and are in good condition, use form DS-82, provided by the Department of State. Even though paper versions of this form are available at many post offices, you cannot use that one to apply for an expedited passport. See below.
Passport renewing is easier than other applications, because you do not need to apply in person. There are still strict rules to follow, but less proof is required when you are able to send in your previous passpcrt as verification.
Please note: Child passports cannot be renewed. They are issued as if new each time.

Some additional information about getting a passport renewal:
The U.S. Department of State issues passports through it's Passport Services Directorate, and is the sole authority in determining who is permitted to receive a U.S. passport. No one can push an application through, or otherwise influence their decision. The vast majority of Americans are entitled to a passport, so long as the application process is followed correctly.
Besides the use of improper forms or insufficient documentation, the most common reasons for passport renewals to be delayed or rejected are:
A past criminal record is not a reason why a person would be denied a passport.
While a passpcrt is required for travel abroad, it is not a guarantee of entry to a foreign country. It is essentially a request to be given the right to travel or reside temporarily within another government's territory, and to gain access to U.S Consular services while overseas.
Travelers should always check as to whether they will also need a visa to enter their destination country.back
