Passport Application Checklist

Make sure you have the following items prepared ahead of time and dodge any common mistakes to ensure a smooth process.

You will need:

    • DS-11: Application for a U.S. Passport
    • DS-82: U.S. Passport Renewal Application for Eligible Individuals

    Save time by completing the application online:

  • These can be done at Walgreens or CVS.

    • Make sure the photo is clear - no earrings, glasses, bows, and has a white background.

    Photo tips here: 

  • Starter checks (bank checks that do not have a name or address) are not accepted.

    • Regular Service (6-8 week processing time)
      • $130 (book only)
      • $160 (book & card)
    • Expedited Service (2-3 week processing time)
      • $209.53 (book only)
      • $238.32 (book & card)
    • Regular Service (7-10 week processing time)
      • $35 processing fee (cash only)
    • Expedited Service (4-6 week processing time)
      • $60 processing fee (cash only)
  • A front and back copy of the ID (one page) will be required. 
  • The clerks will also need to make a copy of the birth certificate (front and back if there is information on the back).

    • If there is something on the back, will need to be two pages rather than one.
  • If you are seeking a name change on your passport, you must provide the original documentation.

Most Common Mistakes

  • If you choose to hand-fill the application rather than online, it cannot be completed in blue ink.
  • The application says Last Name (at Parent's Birth) - this is the #1 mistake.
  • This is someone that will never be traveling with you. If something were to happen to the two of you overseas, there would be no one to contact in the States.
  • Fill out the entire application, especially your complete SSN (Social Security Number) and primary phone number.
