Do I need to fill out Form DS-82 to renew passport in person?

Question: I need to renew my passport but I cannot wait 4-6 weeks. I am going in person to a same day service. What do I need to bring?

Answer: The same requirements apply whether you send your application for renewal by mail or submit it in person at a regional passport agency.

To get a passport renewed, you must submit the following:

* completed application form DS-82
* most recently issued passport
* one passport photo (taken within last 6 months)
* evidence of legal name change (if applicable)

You will also need to present proof of imminent travel.

Note, you cannot renew a passport in person at a local application acceptance facility. This can only be done at a regional agency if you are scheduled to travel abroad within the next two weeks or need to obtain a travel visa within four weeks.

Question: If I'm mailing in the DS-82 with proof of name change (marriage certificate), will I get my marriage certificate back with my renewed passport?

Answer: Your marriage certificate will be mailed to you. It may be sent separately from your new passport and, therefore, may arrive on a different day.
