  • Complete Form DS-11 (only if you never had a passport or will apply for both at the same time)
  • Complete Form DS-82 (only if you have a valid passport)
  • One passport size photo
  • Your current valid passport
  • A clear copy of the front and back of your driver’s license or state-issued ID (if applying for a minor’s passport card)
  • Flight itinerary (if you will use the emergency service)

First-time US Passport Card Applicants

  • Proof of Citizenship:
    • Birth Certificate
    • Certificate of Born Abroad
    • Naturalization Certificate
  • Proof of Identity:
    • Copy of driver’s license or state-issued ID
