These documents include: – The Application form DS-82 – Your Original Passport – Any Change of Name Documents
There are many places you can get a passport photo done, but make sure that the photo is excluding a couple of items such as: – Earphones in your ear – Hats being warn – Any uniform or camouflage – Eyeglasses
If you plan to travel internationally outside North America, it would be best to have a passport book. A passport card works for Canada, Mexico, and a few Caribean Countries.
Mail all these documents into the National Passport Processing Center. They will then be able to take care of having your passport renewed. Use Priority-mail to mail it in. Make sure to get a tracking number to help you track the application.
That is a long process, so make sure to track your application. You can follow the envelope, and after 7-10 days, you can track your application online.
