Quick Tip: When you use the Form Filler to complete your application, the first data entry page is titled “DS-11: Application for a U.S. Passport”. The system will still generate a DS-82 or DS-5504 form if you are eligible based on the information you enter.
- DS-11: Application for a U.S. Passport (for all first-time applicants, all minors, and applicants who are not eligible to use the DS-82)
- DS-82: U.S. Passport Renewal Application for Eligible Individuals (By Mail)
- DS-5504: Application for a U.S. Passport - Corrections, Name Change within 1 Year of Passport Issuance, and Limited Passport Holders
