If your passport is less than a year old then you’re in luck – replacements are free.
If your passport is more than 12 months old then you’ll be hit with fees for a new 10 year passport.
The process of updating an expired passport depends on the age of the individual updating the passport, how long it has been since the passport expired and whether the individual can provide the U. A passport can be renewed by mail if the original passport is undamaged and can be submitted with the application, was issued when the passport holder was over the age of 16, is not more than five years expired and was issued in the current name (or documentation of a legal name change can be submitted with the application). Make sure that it is undamaged and that it was not issued more than 15 years ago. The photograph should be taken within the past six months on a white or off-white background.
