Here are some frequently asked questions:
How do I pay for a passport application by mail?
Can a friend of family member obtain the payment for me?
Yes. If a friend or relative can obtain a payment method meeting the requirements listed on our website, they can send it to you for you to submit together with the other documents required in support of your passport application.
My application has been returned to me with a letter saying the payment was incorrect. What should I do now? What will happen to the payment method I submitted?
If we have contacted you say we are unable to process your application because the payment you submitted was not an accepted method or was made out in the incorrect amount, your next step is either to submit an accepted payment method in the correct amount or schedule a passport appointment through our website so you can apply in person.
I will be booking an appointment to apply for a passport/Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) for my child. Can I submit my own passport renewal application at the same time?
Yes. If your passport service does not require an in-person appearance, you will not be required to book an appointment in your own name. You can submit your documents and pay for your application during your child’s appointment.
