Correcting Printing Errors on your Passport

If your current passport was issued less than one year prior, to correct an error, you should submit:

  • Passport Application

Fill out electronically and print the “U.S. Passport Re-Application Form” DS-5504 wizard form. If you experience trouble with the DS-5504, click here for the DS-5504 (PDF format).

  • Your Current U.S. passport

You must bring your old passport with your application. We will cancel the old passport and return it to you along with the new one.

  • Photograph

Bring one 2″ by 2″ (5 cm x 5 cm) color photo with white background. For additional information on passport photos, go here.

  • Fee Payment

There is no fee for this service if requested within a year of the passport’s issued date.

Note: If your U.S. passport was issued more than twelve months ago, please follow the instructions for a routine passport renewal.

How Long Does It Take?

Processing time is about seven to ten days after we receive your completed application and approve it. All passports are now printed in the U.S. and must be shipped to Moldova. Because computers break, emergencies happen, and mail is sometimes delivered late, we suggest that you do not make any unchangeable travel plans until you have the new passport in hand.
