Passport and or Visas

US citizens, including children, are required to obtain passports in their own names for identification while traveling abroad and for re-entry into the United States. Unless specifically authorized by a passport issuing office, no person may have more than one valid, or potentially valid, US passport of the same type at any one time.

Renew your Passport
Applicants who have had a previous US passport issued within the past 12 years, and who were 16 or older when the passport was issued, may be eligible to apply for a new passport by mail providing they can submit their passport and their name has not changed. They may also apply in person. Documents required for passport renewals include:

  1. US Passport
  2. Two passport photos
  3. A completed passport application form DS-82 which contains all the requested information and is signed and dated. You can order an application form by calling the passport agency nearest you. Mail the completed application and attachments to:

    National Passport Center
    P.O. Box 371971
    Pittsburgh, PA 15250-7971

If you are sending your renewal by overnight delivery other than the US Postal Service, send it to:

Mellon Bank
Attn: Passport Supervisor, 371971
3 Mellon Bank Center, Rm 153-2723
Pittsburgh, PA 15259-0001

Your previous passport will be returned to you with your new passport.

Passport Costs
Passport fees for an initial ten-year passport are now $85 if you are 16 years of age or over, and $70 for a five-year passport if under 16. Note that the fee for a passport is written out as a check or money order to Passport Services and to the county clerk's office, so you may need to bring two checks. Passport renewal fees are now $55. Some local governments are now charging additional processing fees as well.

Time to Apply
Passport application processing time varies with passport agencies workloads. It is best to apply in the fall when workload volume is at its lowest. Processing time is normally about 3-4 weeks, but you should apply at least 4-6 weeks prior to any scheduled international travel. The spring and summer months are the busiest so the application process may take longer during these months.
