Exchange a Limited-Validity Passport

If you were issued a limited-validity passport for a travel emergency, we encourage you to replace it with a full-validity passport immediately upon completion of your travel. If your application for a replacement is made within one year from the date of issuance of the emergency passport no fee will be charged.

The following documents are required to submit during the application:

    1. DS-5504 Application for a U.S. Passport – Corrections, Name Change within 1 Year of Passport Issuance, and Limited Passport Holders .
    2. Your Limited U.S. Passport.
    3. One new photo .
