How to renew your U.S. Passport in Canada

Introduction

Renewing your passport is a simple and quick process if you do it before your current passport expires. You can renew in person or by mail, which takes about six weeks from start to finish. There is no fee for this service unless you need to apply for a new U.S. passport book or card within one year of the expiration date on the previous document (in which case there is a $110 fee).

U.S. Passports are valid for 10 years for adults and five years for children under 16.

If you are an adult and your passport is valid, it will be valid for 10 years. If you are a child under 16 years of age, the validity of your passport will be five years.

If you have a U.S. Passport and would like to renew it before its expiration date, several things must be done before sending away for new documents:

  • Ensure all pages in your current book have been used at least once (to prevent fraud). If not, stamp “VOID” across each unused page with ink or red marker so they cannot be used again by anyone else; then place them back into their respective slots to avoid confusing yourself when filling out forms later on.* Check whether or not any previous visas have been issued by checking with Immigration Canada at https://www.ciccanadaonline/vacationer-information/. This could affect whether or not they will issue another one; so if needed make sure this has been taken care off first.* You must also provide proof of identity when applying for either type – photo ID such as driver’s license plus birth certificate/passport showing name change since last issuance date along with proof of address such as utility bill showing same address being used now instead

If you need to renew your passport before it expires, you can do so in person at the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa or the U.S. Embassy in Toronto.

The best thing to do is to renew your passport in person at the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa or the U.S. Embassy in Toronto if you live within 50 miles of Chicago or New York City. If you live more than 50 miles from these cities and need to renew before your current passport expires, you can apply by mail using Form DS-82 (as long as it’s less than 15 years old). You will need to include proof of citizenship and identity and two identical photos taken within six months of application along with payment for processing fees ($110) and return postage ($25).

The wait time for processing can take up to six weeks but will be longer during busy times such as summer vacation season when many people are traveling abroad so make sure everything is ready ahead of time!

According to the U.S. National Passport Information Center, you can renew your passport by mail if you live within 50 miles of Chicago or New York City.

It’s essential to renew your passport early because there can be a six- to eight-week wait time if the processing is delayed due to an unforeseen circumstance, like an employee illness or injury.
