Passport Book for a Minor
The U.S. State Department requires that the passport application be completed online, on their website. We have divided the process into 2 steps. Each link will open in a new window or tab. Please, close the new window or tab to return to this page.
Applications for children under the age of 16 require that BOTH parents be present to sign the application or NOTARIZED Form DS 3053 be submitted from the absent parent. If one parent has sole custody, that parent must submit a legal copy of the court order that grants sole custody or a death certificate of the other parent if that is applicable.
