Form DS-82. US Passport Renewal Application

Some people have their travel agenda organized beforehand, while others face the rush. Ensure your traveling documents, including the United States passport, are valid, and the expiration margin allows you to travel abroad without restrictions. However, if your U.S. traveling document is about to expire, the National Passport Processing Center offers you to fill out the Passport Renewal Application, also recognized as Form DS-82.

What Is the DS-82 Form Purpose?

DS-82 application is a multi-faceted document that covers several aims. The primary purpose of the form is to allow eligible citizens to apply for the U.S. passport renewal without filing the paperwork in person.

The claimant needs to submit authentic and valid data to apply remotely. However, if any info is considered doubtful or any eligibility condition is shattered, the candidate should appear in person and have an interview with the acceptance agent.

To understand if the applicant is qualified to file the DS-82 form, you are encouraged to complete the questionnaire placed on the first page of the application instruction sheet. We will cover more details in the “How to Fill Out” section of our review.

Also, the DS-82 application can be used to renew the legally changed name or amend some data in a previously issued passport book (or card).

What Documents Are Needed?

Detailed information regarding requesting documents is available on the official travel.state.gov website. As information can be adjusted rather rapidly, we recommend checking out the exact data on the licensed portals.

To have the request admitted, the claimant should provide transaction by check or money order payable to “U.S. Department of State.”

Prepare and serve the paperwork below:

  • DS-82 record
  • The current U.S. passport documents
  • A colorful photo
  • If the name was officially amended, include the acknowledged copy of the marriage agreement or court order.
  • Passport payments
