Form DS-82 is the official form for the U.S. Passport Renewal Application and is offered by the U.S. Department of State.

If you do not have a Passport and would like to submit a new application for passport, you need the Form DS-11. Instructions to fill Form DS-11 for New Passport Application are available here.

The Form DS-82 is available as a Free PDF file of 6 pages. There are four pages of instructions to fill form DS 82, while the remaining two pages are for the information to be filled in the form. The first page of instructions on the Form DS 82 contains a list of questions to find out if you’re eligible for submitting a passport renewal application.
