To protect children from abduction, and to address concerns regarding runaway children, both parents are required to personally appear at a passport acceptance facility, passport agency or U.S. consular section abroad with minor applicants under the age of 16 (up from age 14) and sign the application.
New forms and new information on applying for a passport is available at http://travel.state.gov/passport/.
- If the submitted document is under a different name, you must provide original evidence of the change of name, such as a marriage certificate or a court order. All documents must be originals. One photocopy of each document are requested too.
- For passport applicants under the age of 16 both parents must appear with the child in front of the Consular Officer to sign the child’s application. If one parent is unable to appear before the Consul, s/he must submit a notarized (U.S. Notary) form DS-3053, along with the passport application.
- If your child's appearance has changed significantly from the photo in the previously issued passport, you need to bring a series of photographs, about two for each year of your child's life, which show the development of your child's appearance.
- Passport applications are now sent electronically to the United States for printing and passports are returned via express courier in approximately two weeks.
- To avoid delays or disruption in travel plans, passport applicants are urged to apply for new passports before the old ones expire, and to allow time for processing of a new passport.
- We will issue passports locally in emergency cases only. These passports have limited validity, and cannot be extended. The bearer of a limited validity passport issued overseas is required to exchange it for a full-validity, photo-digitized passport upon completion of the emergency travel.
More information on passport issuance can be found at http://travel.state.gov/.
Adding Pages To Passport
Effective January 01, 2016, adding visa page service to passport has been discontinued.
Renew your passport early to make sure you have enough visa pages for visa stamps from other countries. Some require two blank page for entry and exit.
New passports issued abroad will be 52 pages books automatically.
Amend Your Existing Passport
Effective September 26, 2005, as an additional security enhancement, we can no longer amend valid passports. Instead, customers requesting name changes, extension of validity for limited passports or correction of a printing error must apply for a new passport.
If the change is within one year after issuance, you must submit a U.S. Passport Re-Application form (DS 5504), together with the passport that needs the change, the documentation required, and new passport photos. There will be no charge for routine processing.
If the change is more than one year after issuance, customers will need to submit an Application for Passport by Mail (DS-82), together with the passport that needs the change, the documentation to show why and how the change is required and new pictures. The cost includes the $70 application fee and $40 security surcharge, for a total of $110 for routine processing. Of course, if the requested data change is due to a printing error by Passport Services, there will be no charge.
All of these forms are available online at http://travel.state.gov/. The Passport Amendment/Validation Form (DS-19), previously used to amend passports, is no longer valid. For more information on applying for a U.S. passport, forms, and a wealth of other international travel information, please visit travel.gov website.
