Damaged and Mutilated Passports

To replace a damaged or mutilated passport, you will need to make an appointment.

You must use the passport wizard to print out and sign a form DS-82 (if all the biographical data are NOT damaged) or a form DS-11 (if the passport was mutilated or if the biographical data and/or photo ARE damaged).  If you arrive with inaccurate or incomplete forms, or insufficient funds to pay the fees, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment.
