You can renew your passport at the Embassy using this program if your most recent passport:

  • Is submitted with your application
  • Is undamaged (other than normal “wear and tear”)
  • Was issued when you were age 16 or older
  • Was issued within the last 15 years
  • Was issued in your current name (or you can document your name change with an original or certified copy of your marriage certificate, divorce decree, or court order)
  • Was issued either as a 10-year regular validity passport book OR was issued as a limited validity emergency passport within the last year and you were advised at the time of issuance that you were eligible to replace it free of charge.

Or you could do it thru LCS locally.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Consulate’s visits to Chapala have been cancelled until further notice. Please contact ACSGDL@state.gov for emergency assistance.

Services are offered by appointment only at the U.S. Consulate General in Guadalajara. Click here for information and to make an appointment.

Thanks.

What I pasted from LCS's FB page was dated yesterday at that page.  Contact the LCS person in that post, Norm Pifer for info; may save you a trip to the consulate.  

While the consulate staff is not coming to LCS, LCS is taking renewals to the consulate.
