Passport Forms

Reminders for Printing Your Application

  • Make sure the image of the application covers the entire page.
  • Use vertical, portrait format. Do not print your form horizontally. Doing so will cause delays with your application. 
  • Print your form single-sided on 8.5 inch by 11 inch letter-sized paper. We do not accept double-sided forms.
  • The only handwritten marks we will accept when you use the Form Filler tool are your original signature and date. 

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.
