Passport correction FAQ

I already have a passport, but I've changed addresses. Do I need to update my passport?

No, you don’t need to update your current passport with your new address.

I don't like the photo in my passport. Can I change it?

If your photo looks bad because of a printing error at the Passport Agency, you can use Form DS-5504 to reapply at no cost to you with 12 month from the issued date of your passport.

If your photo is printed correctly and you just dislike your photo, you may use Form DS-82 (if eligible) to reapply. You must pay the normal fees.
