Renewing U.S. Passports by Mail and One-Way Delivery Service

 

We are pleased to announce that effective September 1, 2021, eligible adult U.S. passport holders may apply to renew their ten-year passport by mail through Aramex courier service.

Eligibility
Adult U.S. passport holders may renew their ten-year passport and/or passport cards by Aramex courier service if their most recent U.S. passport and/or passport card is:

  • Undamaged;
  • Issued when the bearer was 16 years old or older;
  • Issued within the last 15 years;
  • Issued with a 10-year validity; and
  • Issued in the bearer’s current name; or if legal documentation of a name change is also submitted.

Fees
To apply to renew your U.S. passport through Aramex courier service, there are two fees you will have to pay:

  • Passport fees must be paid by banker’s cheque made out to ‘U.S. Embassy Kuala Lumpur’ for the passport fee (USD $110.00 or RM 473.00) and/or passport card fee (USD $30.00 or RM 129.00). All passport fees are non-refundable. No other method of payment can be accepted.
  • Aramex delivery service fees must be paid by banker’s cheque made out to ‘Aramex Malaysia Sdn Bhd’. Aramex fees are listed in the table below. If you opt to collect your passport at an Aramex office rather than via home delivery, the payment for this additional service should be included in the total sum of your banker’s cheque to Aramex.

Please review the Passport Services or CRBA Services page to make your passport or CRBA appointment. On the day of your appointment, notify consular staff that you wish to utilize Aramex delivery service to receive your new passport or CRBA.

Following your appointment, contact Aramex courier service by email (all_kul_customer_service_us_embassy@aramex.com) to purchase an Aramex airway bill. Once Aramex confirms that your payment has been received, Aramex will email you an electronic copy of your Aramex airway bill(s). Please forward the Aramex airway bill(s) to KLACS@state.gov so that we can use the airway bill(s) to return your new document(s) to you via mail once received.
