Passport Renewal in Washington, DC

Depending on how quickly you need your passport renewal processed, there are a few different passport renewal possibilities. Let’s take a look at the different options that Washington, DC residents have for renewing their passports so that you can determine which option is the most appropriate for your situation.

 

The first option is simply to send in your passport renewal form by mail. You can apply for passport renewal by mail as long as you have not lost your current passport or had it stolen, it is undamaged, it is less than 15 years old and as long you have legal records to support any name change requests.

 

To renew your passport by mail, use passport renewal form DS-82 and send it in along with your old passport, 2 passport photos, and supporting legal documents if your name has changed since your last passport was issued. Also send a check for the associated fees.

 

Renewing your passport by mail means that you’ll have to wait a while for your passport. If you don’t request expedited processing, it’ll be about 6 weeks. If you do request expedited processing and pay the additional $ 60 fee, it’ll be about 3 weeks.

 

But wait a minute…this is Washington, DC, where the entire Federal government is headquartered. Surely you can get a passport in Washington in less than 3 weeks, right? Actually, yes you can, as long as you can show that you’ll be leaving the country in the next 14 days and don’t have one. Just make an appointment at the Washington, DC passport agency office, located on 1111 19th Street, N.W.

To make an appointment, call 1-877-487-2778.

 

If you can’t make it down to the passport agency office but you need your passport in a hurry, your final alternative is to use a private passport expediting company to submit your passport application for you.
