This page provides information only for U.S. citizens renewing a limited validity (1-year or less) passport.
If you are carrying a limited validity passport, the passport cannot be extended. Rather, you must apply for a replacement passport. If you apply for the replacement before the limited validity passport expires, the replacement passport is provided free of charge. You must present the following items:
- Completed Form DS-5504
- One passport photo (no more than 6 months old), 2 inches (5 cm) square with a white background.
- Your limited validity U.S. passport.

Once the application is complete and approved by the Consul, the passport will be ready for pick-up in approximately 10 – 14 days.
