Can I renew the passport of my daughter if she is 6 years old?

by Elida
(Tempe, Az. USA)

Question: Her passport expires on May 31, do I have to go thru all the process so she can have a new passport or can hers be renewed?

We are traveling to Mexico on May 27 and we were not planning on coming back until June 1st, so I was just wondering if I can get her passport renewed or if I need to rearrange my return on May 31.

Answer: You must apply for a new passport for your daughter using Form DS-11 and submitting all supporting documents.

Since your trip is planned for May 27, you either need to apply for emergency passport expediting or return to the U.S. before the passport expires.

In order to obtain your daughter's passport before you leave, you have two options. One, you can submit the application at the regional agency in Tucson or you can get a professional passport expediter to do it for you.
