The Lt. Governor's Office, I believe. There is a passport office within there.

I did mine by mail about two months ago. Got my new passport back in about two weeks. I did not pay for expedited handling.

I'm in that process as I type. I picked up our applications at Government House on King St, Christiansted. I lost our photos, so we are headed out this morning to replace them and turn back paperwork to Government House.

The easy way is by mail.

1) Go online and fill out the DS-82.
2) Print it.
3) Mail it, your old passport and a new photo along with the appropriate payment to the State Department.

You're welcome.

I sent my renewal in the beginning of December. Regular handling.
Two weeks later I got my new passport and new passport card the same day. Three days later I received my old passport back. I was very surprised and pleased.

I just zipped into One Hour Photo behind Christiansted downtown market just off Queen Cross. In and out in 10 minutes, $15! Very quick. I never seem to catch Hughes open in SI.

Exactly where is one hour photo? Near downtown post office? Not sure what downtown market means.

On the street behind the parking lot on Company Street. I had passport photos done there recently. Very fast.

Downtown market square is in parking lot across from post off on Company St. One hour photo is just off Queen Cross. If you go to the market and look South it's right there. Not sure of street name but it's parallel with Company. Closed on weekends.

Thanks. I read on passport form that unless you have medical form, glasses must be off for photo. That's new

Never wear glasses for passport or naturalization photos...even with a medical form.

Funny, I picked up my husband's just last week. Both old and new were mailed together.
I saved printing by picking up application at Government House on King Street. One Hour Photo is great!
