I have the required software and paper.

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 download. Failure to use the correct form will result in a delay in the issuance of your passport:

DSP-11: Application for Passport

This form must be presented and signed in person at an authorized passport acceptance facility. If you have never had a U.S. passport, you are under age 18, or if your most recent passport was lost or stolen you must use this form. (If you are applying because your passport was lost or stolen, you will also need to submit Form DSP-64 listed below.) Please follow the instructions on the second page of the application.

DSP-82: Application For Passport By Mail

(For Renewals Only) This form should be used for renewing a previously issued U.S. passport either by mail or in person. There are four criteria for using this form. Please use the following checklist to see if you are eligible to apply with a DSP-82:
1. I can submit my most recent passport.

2. I was at least 18 years old when my most recent passport was issued.

3. I was issued my most recent passport less than 12 years ago.

4. I use the same name as on my most recent passort, OR, I have had my name changed by marriage or court order and can submit proper documentation to reflect my name changes.

If you answered NO to any of the four statements above...STOP!
You cannot use form DSP-82!!!
You must apply on application form DSP-11
