Would I be Able to Keep Passport Stamps on My Passport?
Question I’ve traveled very frequently overseas and I was wondering if there was any way that I can keep the stamps I have in my passport from all the various countries I went to. Does my passport validity affect this?
Answer You will be able to keep the stamps in your passport book because your current passport is sent back to you when you receive your new passport. They are mail separately so you will receive them on different days.
You will be able to renew your passport by mail as an adult if you were given that passport when you were at least 16 years old, if it is not damage in any way and if it was given to you within the last 15 years. If you were under the age of 16 when you got your passport, then you cannot renew by mail. Hence, you will have to appear in person at a passport application acceptance facility.
Also, you can renew by mailing in your application for renewal along with any necessary documents. Of course, if you meet the guidelines you can go ahead and mail it in. Regular passport processing usually takes about 4-6 weeks to obtain a passport. You can use an expedite passport service which will process your passport within 2-3 weeks. The quickest way to obtain a passport would be to visit your closest regional passport agency. Or, employ a professional expediter to submit your application for you. You should be able to receive your passport in two weeks or less. The following link will provide more information on renewing your passport by mail.
