There are a couple of different options when it comes to passport renewal in Miami, Florida. First, you may be able to renew by mail. Passport renewal by mail is an option for you if:
- You have your old US passport and it has not been damaged or mutilated.
- You got your old passport when you were 16 or older and it is less than 15 years old.
- You have legal documentation to submit for any name changes.
If you have to apply in person, you can find the nearest Passport Application Acceptance Facility and submit your application there. Be sure to apply early and allow at least a couple of months to receive your passport with regular processing. Even with the government’s expedited processing option, it can still take at least 3 weeks for you to receive your new passport.
If you are traveling or need to apply for a visa in 14 days or less, you can schedule an appointment with the Miami Regional Passport Agency office. This can be somewhat of a hassle. Appointments are free, but only available from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm, so most people will have to get time off work. You cannot be more than 15 minutes early to the appointment, or they won’t let you in. If you are more than 15 minutes late, you have to schedule a new appointment.
Even after you arrive at your appointment, you may not be seen immediately. Instead, you will have to take a number and wait to be called. Waiting times can vary depending on how busy the office is.
