To renew your passport there are a few things that you need. First of all, if you have already owned a passport, you may be eligible to use form DS-82. If you have the following things you may renew your card by mail: If your former passport was issued by age 16 or older, was issued in your current name and if it was issued in the last 15 years. You can always go in and renew it in person. Good luck!
