 RENEWALS :

You can ONLY renew a passport if it was valid for 10 years and has not been expired for more than 5 years.  Children's passports CANNOT be renewed.  Children must apply for a NEW passport until they acquire an 'adult' (10 year) passport. 

Passport renewals are processed by mail only and should be submitted to the US Department of State directly by the applicant.  You may obtain a passport renewal application (DS-82) by visiting Avondale City Hall or at www.travel.state.gov

Note that many countries require your passport to have at least six months validity remaining prior to allowing entry into that country.  Watch this video highlighting the importance of knowing your passport's expiration date as you are planning your trip abroad.

Visit the U.S. Department of State website for more information regarding acceptable documents and processing times or call the Avondale City Clerk’s Department at (623) 333-1200
