Step 1 – Make an Appointment
Make an appointment to renew your passport. For adult passport renewals, a courier or representative may deliver all your documents and payment to the embassy on your behalf; the applicant him/herself does not need to come to the embassy.
Step 2 – Prepare for your Appointment
Prepare the following items to bring to your appointment. Forms are available at the Embassy if you do not have access to a printer.
- Fill out and print the DS-82 Passport Renewal Form.
- One 2″ x 2″ (5cm x 5cm) photograph. Click here for exact photo requirements. Photos that do not meet these requirements will not be accepted.
- Your most recent U.S. passport.
Step 3 – Attend Appointment and Pay the Fee
Come to the embassy on the date and time of your appointment with all the required documents. You will pay the renewal fee at the start of your appointment. The fee for a passport renewal is USD $130. You can pay with U.S. dollars, Papua New Guinean kina, or a credit card. We do not accept checks.
If all your documents are in order and the form is properly filled out, your appointment will usually only take 5-10 minutes.
Step 4 – Wait for Your New Passport
Your new passport will be ready within approximately two weeks. You will receive an email from ConsularPortMoresby@state.gov when your new passport is ready for pickup. If you have applied for both a passport book and a passport card, they will not be ready at the same time; the card will be ready approximately two weeks after you pick up your book.
Please note: The Consular Officer may require additional documentation to the items listed above if there are questions about your citizenship or your application. In this case, the applicant has 90 days to provide the documentation. After the 90-day period, the application will be considered abandoned, and the applicant will have to begin the process again.
