The available passport application forms are double-sided. Although the second pages require no data from the applicant, they contain important information and official legal statements and are a required part of the application form. They should be read before completing the form and must be submitted with the completed first page. Your application will not be accepted without the second page. This form must be printed on 2 pages.
The following forms are available for printing. Failure to use the correct form will result in a delay in the issuance of your passport:
This form must be presented and signed in person at an authorized passport acceptance facility.
You must use this form IF:
- You have never had a U.S. passport,
- You are under age 16, -OR-
- If your most recent passport was lost or stolen. (If you are applying because your passport was lost or stolen, you will also need to submit Form DS-64 listed below.)
Please follow the instructions on the second page of the application.
