How to fill up the application form?
Choose the regular passport book (standard) option if you do not wish to pay an additional cost. If you are a frequent traveler and require a larger passport book, you may select the option for a large passport book (non-standard) but will be charged to pay extra.
The first part of the form requires you to fill in your personal information including your name, date of birth, gender, place of birth, contact information and most importantly your mailing address. You will be required to provide a Social Security Number. If you do not have a Social Security Number, you will be required to hand in a statement which will have to be signed and dated. This statement must contain the phrase, “I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States of America that the following is true and correct: I have never been issued a Social Security Number by the Social Security Administration.”
You will also be provided space to attach your passport photo with instructions for the size of your passport picture. Next to it, you have to give details regarding your current passport book or passport card which has to be renewed. The last section on this page is related to a name change situation. It only applies to you if you have ever changed your name.
The next page requires some information related to your physical appearance including height, hair color, and eye color. You will also have to state your occupation, employer or school, contact numbers, permanent address, emergency contact, and travel plans.
In order to get your passport processing in time, you must make sure that you have completed the entire form and are not leaving out anything. Double-check the information you have already filled out again to avoid making any mistakes.
