Obtaining a Second U.S. Passport
The Department of State may issue a second U.S. passport when justified on a case by case basis. The second valid passport will be valid for a period of 30 months. Thereafter, a new passport must be applied for; second valid passports are not extendable.
To apply for a second valid passport by mail please follow these instructions.
To apply for a second valid passport in person, you will need to make an appointment and submit the following documents:
- Application form DS-82
- Submit either your current valid passport or current second valid passport (in you already have one);
- An affidavit (PDF 30KB) attesting to the use of the second passport;
- Two recent identical color photographs. They must be two inches by two inches (5cm x 5cm) and the size of the head (from hair to chin) must be between .75 inches and 1 inch (2.5 to 3.5cm). The background must be plain and light-colored;
- The $110 application fee.
Passports are printed in the United States with a secure photo-digitized image of the bearer. You should allow for up to seven working days for your application to be processed. Domestic mailing, depending on the destination, takes additional 1-3 days one way.
