Americans will be able to renew their passports online
According to recent news from the U.S. Department of State, Americans will be able to renew their passports online as soon as next year.
The program will require applicants to meet a specific set of criteria, including that they are at least 25 years old, that their most recent passport was valid for 10 years, and their old passport was issued between 9 and 15 years ago.
If travelers qualify, the applicants will create a MyTravelGov account and wait for approval before filling out the application, which includes uploading a photo and paying for the renewal online. Travelers will then track their application progress through a link while they wait for renewal.
A full public launch of the online passport renewal option is expected early next year.
