The final rule giving eligible applicants the option to renew passports online is scheduled to be published in the Federal Register tomorrow.
Additional Information: U.S. passport renewal applicants typically use the mail-in process, requiring applications to be initially processed through a lockbox and then sent to a passport agency or center for further processing. The final rule provides more flexibility for the renewal applicant; eliminates the physical application and lockbox processing times; and increases data quality, protection and traceability.
BAL Analysis: The rule should help streamline the renewal process for eligible U.S. passport holders. Passport applicants are reminded that the State Department is still seeing extended processing delays and should apply at least six months before planned travel.
