Renewing a passport is straightforward, especially if you have your old passport. To renew your passport:
- Fill out an application form.
- Schedule an appointment.
- Appear at the Consulate for your appointment. Please bring with you (i) your current passport, (ii) your completed (but unsigned) application, and (iii) two recent 2×2 inch color photos on a white background. If you have passport photos taken somewhere in Mexico, please be sure to tell the photographer the size required – passport photos for Mexican passports are smaller than the acceptable size.
- Pay the appropriate fee. Renewal fees are USD$105 for applicants under the age of 16 and USD$110 for those 16 years and older.
Of course, we can also help you if you just need to add extra blank pages to your current valid passport or if your passport has been lost or stolen.
If your passport has been lost or stolen, in addition to the application form and passport photos mentioned above, you will also need to fill out Form DS-64 (“Statement Regarding a Lost or Stolen Passport”). Be sure also to bring photo identification (e.g., a driver’s license or other state-issued ID) with you to your appointment. As with passport renewals, fees vary depending on the age of the applicant and service requested.
We encourage you to visit the Consulate’s website for more information regarding all of the passport services we offer.
From all of us at the U.S. Consulate General Mérida, we wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season.
