Passports for Minors (under the age of 16)

Statement of Consent: Issuance of Passport to a Minor DS-3053

When a minor (under age 16) is applying for a passport, both parents/legal guardians of the minor must be present when the application is submitted. If one of the parents or legal guardians is unable to be present, then a DS-3053 form must be completed and notarized by the parent or legal guardian who cannot be present as a statement of consent.


It’s inconvenient and takes too much time to locate a notary to have the DS-3053.
