Not Sure Of the Best Way To Mail A Passport Renewal …… I mentioned in a post a while back that I got my passport photos ( www.bubblews.com/news/981961-got-my-passport-pictures ). I also downloaded and printed out application for my new passport renewal. Since my passport is less than 15 years old I can just renew it all via US mail. The tricky part I’m still wondering is what the best way to mail is. I’m definitely going to use a traceable mail and the passport website suggests putting the application in a padded envelope large enough where I don’t have to fold the application. I guess what I wonder is if I don’t fold the application, will my passport photo, which I’ll staple to the application, will get scuffed during mailing. Probably not I suppose. I guess I could even put an easily removable cover over the application or something. I’ll figure it out. Not sure if you guys have done this with a US passport before.
