What is a passport book?
A passport book is a small, booklet-style travel document that is issued by your country’s government. It includes your name, photo, and other identifying information, as well as space for official stamps and visas. A passport book is required for international travel by air, land, or sea.
How to get a passport book?
There are two ways to get a passport book: through the mail or by scheduling an appointment at a passport agency or center.
If you are applying for a passport for the first time, you will need to submit your application in person. You cannot apply for a passport book online or by mail.
To apply for a passport book, you will need to submit the following:
-A completed passport application (form DS-11)
-Proof of U.S. citizenship (such as a birth certificate or naturalization certificate)
-A valid photo ID (such as a driver’s license or military ID)
-Two passport photos
What is the difference between a passport book and a passport card?
A passport book is a document that allows you to travel internationally by air, land, or sea. It contains your personal information, such as your name, photo, and date of birth. A passport card is a smaller, wallet-sized card that can be used for travel by land and sea within the United States and its territories.
How much does a passport book cost?
As of October 2020, the cost of a U.S. passport book for first-time applicants is $110. If you need to renew your passport, the cost is $110. If you qualify for the passport card instead of the book, the cost is $30.
How to renew your passport book?
A U.S. passport book is valid for international travel by air, land and sea. It generally has a five- or ten-year validity period and can be renewed by mail. You must submit your most recent passport, a completed application, proof of citizenship and a passport photo. If your passport has been expired for more than five years, you must apply in person.
How to replace a lost or stolen passport book?
If you lose your passport book or it is stolen, you must report the loss or theft to the U.S. Department of State and obtain a replacement passport. You can report the loss or theft in person at a passport agency or center, by mail, or via the State Department’s online passport service. You will need to provide proof of your U.S. citizenship, proof of identity, two photographs of yourself, and a fee in order to obtain a replacement passport book.
What to do if your passport book is damaged?
Passports are essential for international travel. They prove your identity and citizenship, and they allow you to obtain a visa to enter your destination country. A passport book consists of several pages printed on high-quality paper. The front cover bears the passport’s issuing country, the type of passport (e.g., ordinary, official, diplomatic), the passport’s serial number, the holder’s name, photograph and other identifying information.
If your passport book is lost or stolen, you should contact your nearest consulate or embassy as soon as possible. They will issue you a new passport. If your passport book is damaged, you can also apply for a new passport. To do so, you will need to submit a completed application form, two photographs of yourself and proof of U.S. citizenship (such as a birth certificate or naturalization certificate). You will also need to pay a fee.
What information is contained in a passport book?
A passport book is a travel document that is issued by a person’s country of citizenship and allows that person to travel internationally. The passport book contains the holder’s name, date of birth, place of birth, photo, and other identifying information. It also contains Visa pages, which list the countries that the holder is allowed to enter and exit.
How to update your passport book?
If you need to update your passport book, you will need to submit a passport application. You can do this through the mail or in person at a passport agency or center. Be sure to include any necessary documentation, such as proof of citizenship and a passport photo. Once your application is processed, you will receive your new passport book in the mail.
