Amendments to a Passport

If you are requesting for a name change, extension of validity for limited passports, or correction of a printing error, then apply for a replacement passport. If the change is within one year after issuance, please submit a U.S. passport Re-Application Form DS-5504 (PDF 84 KB).  Also, submit the passport that needs the change, the documentation required, and new passport pictures. There is no charge for this.

If the change is more than one year after issuance, please submit an Application for Passport DS-82 (PDF 84 KB), along with the passport that needs the change, the documentation required, and new pictures. The cost is $110 or equivalent in CFA.
