If your passport is about to expire, you will need to take care of its renewal as crossing a border or flying outside the USA will not be feasible after its expiration date. The renewal process takes up to six weeks and can be carried out by mail provided you fulfill the following requirements: the passport is in your possession, it was issued within the last 15 years ago, it is in undamaged condition, you were at least 16 at the time of its issue date, and it was issued in your current name (or you can document your name change). If any of these requirements is not met, you will need to show up in person as Regional Passport Agency. If there is an urgent case and passport needs to be renewed immediately, the whole procedure is expedited what entails covering additional fees. Renewed passports have the same length of validity as original passports (10 years in case you are at least 16 or 5 years if you are 15 years-of-age or younger). There are some rare cases when a passport is issued without a fee, for instance, if you are a U.S. Government employee or American Seaman. Some people are concerned about their old passport as they wish to keep it because it reminds them of all the places they have been to. No worries, it will be sent back but separately from your new passport. If the whole process of renewal seems too time-consuming, there is an option to speed it up.
