Hello there and welcome to Travel Visa Pro! Are you looking to process a passport for your child and are wondering what it entails? We have all the information you need, and we can get the process done in less than 24 hours, thanks to our dedicated agents located across the country.
Let us start with eligibility. Your child can get a child passport if they have never held one before and are thus applying for their first one. It could also be that they have owned one previously and have still not attained sixteen years. In such a case, they would also qualify for a minor passport. Supposing your child has lost or damaged their passport, they can get one.
The requirements for this kind of passport are pretty standard. You will start off by filling in a DS 11 form, which you should do online, before printing out two copies of the same. You will also require completing and signing two authorization letters by hand. These records will enable us to act in your capacity during the application. You should also provide us with two passport photos of the minor taken within the last three months.
Proof of US citizenship is essential and you can either provide a birth certificate or a naturalization certificate. Ensure that the records you provide are original as the state department will not accept copies. We will ensure that you get the originals once the process is complete. You should also provide proof of your identity. It can be in the form of a driver’s license, a valid US passport or a current government ID. It is essential that you prove your relationship to the minor and there are many ways you can do this including a birth certificate or a court decree. Our agents will advise you accordingly at this stage.
Finally, we require that you present us with proof of travel plans to show the need for expedition. We will then undertake the processing and deliver a child passport to you within a day. Thank you!
