First Time Applicants
Understanding the Passport Card Form


When it comes to understanding your passport card form, you will find that it is pretty much a straightforward form easily fillable if you know what you are doing. As with all government forms, you will need to fill out every field, and of course, have the verification needed to validate your responses. As a first time applicant, the form may seem a bit daunting, but once you tackle the form, you will find it is actually quite easy.


As a first time applicant for the US Passport card, you will be required to submit Form DS-11. In addition, you will be required to submit the appropriate proof of citizenship along with the fees and costs associated with your passport card. For adults, the basic price for submitting an application is 45USD; for a minor, the basic price is 35USD. When it comes time to renew, the cost is only going to be 20USD!


You must submit Form DS-11 if any of the following apply to you:


-- You have never been issued a U.S. passport or

-- You are under age 16 or

-- You were under age 16 when your previous passport was issued or

-- Your most recent U.S. passport was issued more than 15 years ago or

-- Your most recent U.S. passport was lost or stolen or

-- Your name has changed since your previous U.S. passport was issued and you are unable to legally document your name change


First, you will need to complete the form by hand. Write legibly and only use black ink. Illegible application, application in anything but black ink, and incorrect information may cause your application to be denied or delayed. Of course, if you have questions concerning the application Form DS-11, contact VIP Passports for assistance.


One important thing to consider is that the US Passport card is not globally interoperable and, therefore, is not applicable for travel via air either to or from the United States. If you plan on traveling by air or an emergency arises where air travel is a necessity, the US Passport card is NOT for you! The US Passport card is only valid for travel by air or sea to or from Bermuda, the Caribbean, Mexico, and Canada.


Form DS-11 is actually only 2 pages. However, you must understand and fill out each form field that applies to you and your situation. In addition, you will be required to submit 2 passport photos that meets strict regulations. The estimated time to complete the form is 85 minutes, but if you have filed for a US Passport book previously, you will find that Form DS-11 does not take much time at all.


When it comes to applying for your US Passport card (or book), you will discover that the process is more difficult than the application. Having a professional company on your team ensures your application has the maximum chance of being accepted.  Trusting VIP Passports for your needs just makes good, old fashioned commonsense.
