Most Common Forms for a U.S. Passport
You may fill out these forms using an online Form Filler or by downloading a PDF of the application. The Form Filler tool is a shared resource for four of our forms. You may see a different form than you expected (for example, a DS-11 instead of a DS-82). The Form Filler will create the correct form for you based on the information you enter.
The Form Filler works best if you are applying for or renewing your U.S. passport in the United States or renewing by mail from Canada. If you need to apply for or renew your U.S. passport in another country, visit the webpage of the U.S. embassy or consulate
in that country for more information.
1. Application For A U.S. Passport (DS-11)
2. Renewal Application (DS-82)
- You should complete this form if you meet our requirements to renew your passport. Keep in mind that children under age 16 cannot renew their passports and must apply using Form DS-11.
3. Data Corrections, Some Name Changes, and Limited-Validity Passports (DS-5504)
Forms for Special Situations
You should only submit the forms listed below for special situations.

2. Statement of Consent for Issuing a Passport to a Child (DS-3053)
