    The process for renewal is the same as the process for a new passport application with the exception that you will also complete the “Recent Passport” section (SECTION D) of the application form with the old/expired passport details as well as submit the old passport with the renewal application form.

    Please see instructions here:

    Asking this question on my friend’s behalf.
    He would like to obtain his Jamaica Passport, that was expired over 30 years now.
    He does not have the old passport, and do not know the passport number or expired date.
    How do he go about applying for a new one without this information?

    We recommend submitting your passport renewal application about six months prior to its expiration date.
