-Passport renewals can be done via mail
-Two identical color photos must be submitted with every passport application as well as various other documents.
Through the next four years, officials expect to process almost 100
million passports so it may pay to check your passport now to see if it is in line with government legislation or is near its expiry date and do something about it before the next trip.
