Applying for Your Passport ......|
It is a good idea to apply for your passport 3 months before you plan to travel. Allow more time if you also need a visa. You must have a valid passport before applying for your visa. This is very important
in order to insure entering and exiting other countries.
If this is your first passport, you must apply in person. You can apply at any passport agency or at one of the many clerks of court or post offices designated to accept passport applications. When applying, bring with you...
Proof of US Citizenship...
Usually a certified copy of your birth certificate, previous US passport, a naturalization certificate or a Consular Report of Birth Abroad.
Two identical recent front view photos...
2" x 2".
A completed passport application...
Proof of identity...
Such as your valid drivers license or other photo or physical description ID.
And the appropriate fee for a passport valid for 10 years.
Your birth certificate or other documents will be returned to
you by mail, along with your new passport.

Will You Need a Visa ......
Many countries require a visa. This is an endorsement or stamp placed in your passport by a foreign government. It permits you to visit that country for a specified purpose and a limited time.
U.S. passport agencies cannot obtain visas for you. Apply for your visa directly to the embassy or consulate of each country you plan to visit. Ask your travel agent to assist you with visas.
An increasing number of countries are establishing entry requirements regarding AIDS testing. Particularly for long-term residents and students. Check with the embassy or consulate of the countries you plan to visit for the latest information.
A number of countries require you to obtain your visa from the embassy or consular office nearest to your residence. The addresses of foreign consular offices can be found in telephone
directories of large cities or in the Congressional Directory. Available in most libraries.
You may write to the appropriate embassy in Washington, DC. Request the address of their consulate that is nearest to you. You can also obtain the Department of State booklet, Foreign Entry Requirements. This lists visa and other entry requirements and locations of all foreign embassies and consulates in the US.
