You can renew you pasport upto 9 months before it's expiry date.

You can renew anytime you like but your won't get credit for the unused time if there is more than 9 months left on it.

As far as i know you don't get 'credit' for any unused time . My current passport was issued in Bangkok , 5 days , no hassle , very efficient , because the previous one had no space left for stamps and visas , but I didn't get any 'credit' for the 6 months left on it , but I did opt for the one with more pages this time , wasn't much more expensive . The problem now is that the Sofia Embassy doesn't issue new passports , but thats on another thread . Tim .

Renewing during final 4months of old date , your new passport includes that unused time. Just renewed ours.
