Adult Passport Renewal Applicants, eligible to use Form DS-82, are strongly urged to apply via mail. If you cannot pay via mail due to payment issues and need to visit the U.S. Consulate General in Frankfurt to drop off your DS- 82, you must do so on a walk-in basis Tuesdays and Thursdays between 13:00 – 14:00, except on German and American Holidays and every last Thursday of the month. We will not be able to serve you on walk-in days if you require any service other than Form DS-82.
On the date you submit your application you are required to bring:
- Completed DS-82 form, which is accessed and completed online at https://pptform.state.gov Complete this online form, print it out, and sign it. Your form must have a 2D barcode. The form must be completed in its entirety.
- Your most recent U.S. passport and a photocopy of the bio page;
- One U.S. passport sized photograph – 5cm x 5cm on a white background and adhering to the regulations found here. We strongly recommend you bring a passport picture with you as we are not able to guarantee that our photo machines on our premises are functional.
- If you have changed your name since your U.S. passport was issued, you are required to provide evidence of your name change, such as marriage certificate, divorce decree, legal name change document, court order. Original documents and single-sided black and white photocopies of each document are required.
- The non-refundable application fee for an adult passport renewal is $110.00. The fee is payable in Euros, Dollars, or Credit Card. We do not accept EC cards.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to bring a DHL Express Easy (see sample pdf) or any other pre-paid courier envelope with a tracking number to the appointment. Make sure to enter your address as the receiver and the Consulates address as “Absender”. Please note/copy your envelope tracking number prior to your appointment, so that you will be able to track your passport envelope.

If you were never issued a Social Security number, you must submit a signed and dated statement that includes the phrase, “I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States of America that the following is true and correct: I have never been issued a Social Security Number by the Social Security Administration.”
