(Irving, Texas, United States)
Question: I am going to Cozumel in a few months. My passport expired 4 years ago. Should I renew or apply for a new one?
You can renew a passport by mail if:
1) you were age 16 or older with it was issued;
2) it was issued within the last 15 years;
3) it is not significantly damaged
If you were age 15 or younger at the time your passport was issued, you will have to visit an application acceptance facility in order to apply for a new passport
Finally, you need to include legal proof of name change if your name is now different from that on your current passport.
