1.         Use the most recent passport in your possession along with the original certificates/documents to complete the application form.

2.         Ensure information is consistent throughout the documents such as dates and the spelling of all names.

3.         Ensure the applicant’s signature is affixed within the rectangular box, which sits in the middle of two square boxes at the top of page 2. The signature must not touch any of the lines of the rectangular box. Minors ages 12 and over are required to affix their signature on the application form.  They are not required to sign anywhere else on the form. (Minors under the age of 12 are not required to affix signatures).

4.         The signature in the rectangular box must match the declarant’s signature in Section E at the bottom of page 2, with the exception of minors under the age of 12. If the signatures are not consistent submit a blank typing paper with four (4) samples of applicant’s signature.

5.         The parent giving consent for the child to hold a passport will complete and sign Sections C and E of the passport application form.
