How to Renew a Passport Online in New York
Renewing a passport is the same no matter where you live, as it’s done through the U.S. Department of State, a federal agency. New Yorkers with an expired or about-to-expire passport can often complete the renewal process by mail. You may do so unless your current passport is lost, damaged or destroyed; if you are currently under the age of 16 or were younger than 16 when your last passport was issued; if you can’t provide documentation of a name change; or if your expired passport is more than 15 years old. Otherwise, you must renew your passport in person, and in some circumstances may need to go through the original application process. This would be done at a local New York passport acceptance facility.
Visit the U.S. Department of State website’s page for Passport Forms. Download and complete Form DS-82 Application for U.S. Passport by Mail. It can be filled out online, but then must be printed out upon completion. Sign and date the form after you print it.
Obtain a passport photo. The photo must conform to the U.S. Department of State guidelines, which are spelled out in detail on the website’s Passport Photos page. A proper photo can typically be obtained at a New York post office or at many drugstores.
Gather the additional documents necessary to renew your passport. You must send your current passport with your renewal application along with the required fee. The fee varies depending on whether you want expedited service and which type of passport document you request. Current fees are posted on the U.S. Department of State website’s Passport Fees page.
Mail in your completed form DS-82, the required fee and supporting documents. New York state residents should send everything to the National Passport Processing Center at P.O. Box 640155, Irving, TX 75064-0155.
Navigate to the U.S Department of State website and complete Form DS-11 Application for U.S. Passport. It’s available for download from the Passport Forms page. Fill and print it out, but don’t sign it, as this must be done in the presence of a passport agent.
Obtain a passport photo that conform to the U.S. Department of State guidelines as outlined on the agency website’s Passport Photos page. Most New York post offices, as well as many drugstores, offer passport photo services.
Gather the additional documents needed for the renewal application. You must provide evidence of U.S. citizenship, an authorized identification card and a copy of that identification card, along with the required fee. The fee varies depending on whether you want expedited service and which type of passport document you request. Information about acceptable document forms is available in detail on the U.S. Department of State website’s page Applying for a Passport in Person. Current fees can be obtained on the site’s Passport Fees page.
Schedule an appointment at the New York passport agency at the Greater New York Federal Building at 376 Hudson St., New York, NY 10014-3621. Or, visit any area passport acceptance facility. Find the nearest options by entering either your zip code or your city and state on the U.S. Department of State website’s Passport Acceptance Facility Search Page. Bring the completed Form DS-11, your passport photo, all supporting documentation and the required fee to your appointment.
Fees can be paid by check or money order only. If you need your passport in a hurry, you may pay for expedited service or may make an appointment with the regional passport agency if you need one in less than two weeks for international travel.
Allow sufficient time for processing. Processing times vary; however, typical processing times run four to six weeks.
