  • Individuals who are applying for the first time, whose passport has already expired, or who have changed their name or permanent address on their family register are not eligible for the online application.
Needed Documents

To apply for passport renewal online, applicants should prepare the following in advance:

  • valid passport
  • Applicant’s My Number Card
  • Smartphones that are compatible with the Mynaportal app. A Mynaportal-compatible smartphone is required to read the My Number card and passport during the application process.
