Based on the information provided, you need to complete a DS-82. Please see the Local Information section to determine if you are required to submit an online form or a handwritten form.
Step One: Complete the DS-82. If you live in one of the following countries, you may be required to renew by mail: American Institute in Taiwan, Denmark, Greenland, The Faroe Islands, Norway, France, Monaco, Japan, Panama, Papua New Guinea, The Solomon Islands, and Vanuatu. Please see location-specific information for additional instructions.
Step Two: Print it out, but do not sign it.
Your name change document will be returned to you in a separate mailing from your new passport.
Step Three: If you are changing the gender marker in your U.S. passport, please see these additional requirements.
U.S. embassy, consulate, or office providing consular services will not be able to offer emergency passports with X gender markers until all technological updates are complete in late 2023. If an X gender marker passport holder loses their passport while traveling overseas, they will need to select a binary gender marker (M or F) to be issued an emergency passport. Once they have completed their travel, they have up to one year from the date of issuance to apply for a free replacement routine passport with an X gender marker using Form DS-5504.
Step Four: Provide a photo
Attach one photo to your application. To avoid processing delays, be sure your photo meets all the photo requirements.
Please note: Photo requirements for a U.S. passport may differ from passport photo requirements of other countries.
Step Five: View local information below to determine fees and payment process.
Step Six: Submit documentation. Some consular offices require mail-in applications and others require appointments. Visit the Local Information section on this page for the requirements at your location.
