How long is a US passport good for?

Your passport's expiration date depends on when it was issued by the government or when you renewed it.

According to the US Department of State, a passport is valid for 10 years if issued when you were 16 years old or older.

However, if your passport was issued after the age of 16, it is valid for five years.

You can check your passport's issue date on the data page or the front page of your passport card.

You can renew your passport even without it being expired.

You can apply for a new book or card by submitting valid documents.

In case your passport has expired, you can get it renewed if it was issued in the last 15 years.

The US passport ranks third in the world. Citizens can visit 170 countries visa-free.
