  • Your old passport.

  • Either a DS-82 passport application (if you have a full validity, 10 year passport issued within the past 15 years that is not mutilated in any way), or a DS-11 passport application (all others). If you or your children’s previous passport(s) were issued for a 5-year validity period, use the DS-11.
  • Cash (dollars or Tunisian Dinars) or Electronic payment.
