A U.S. passport is valid for 10 years from the date of issue, unless it is sooner revoked or suspended by the U.S. Department of State. If your passport was issued when you were 16 years of age or older, it will expire 10 years after the date of issue. If it was issued when you were 15 years of age or younger, it will expire 5 years after the date of issue. You can renew your passport by mail if it is undamaged and can be submitted with your application. You must submit a new passport application if your passport has been lost or stolen, damaged beyond repair, or if it has expired and you cannot submit it with your application. There is no limit to the number of times you can renew your passport.
