                                                                                                                            Important Information:

                                                                                          An Adult passport (18 years of age and older) is valid for 10 years.
                                                                                              A minor's passport (ages 16-18 years old) is valid for 10 years.
                                                                                                 A child's passport (ages 0-15 years old) is valid for 5 years.

Passports are generally issued within 4-6 weeks of application.

The passport card will facilitate entry and expedite document processing at U.S. land and sea ports-of-entry when arriving from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda. The card may not be used to travel by air. It will otherwise carry the rights and privileges of the U.S. passport book and will be adjudicated to the exact same standards.

The Department of State is issuing this passport card in response to the needs of border resident communities for a less expensive and more portable alternative to the traditional passport book. The card will have the same validity period as a passport book: 10 years for an adult, five for children 15 years of age and younger. For adults who already have a passport book, they may apply for the card as a passport renewal and pay only $ 30.00.

Identification requirements:
If born in the United States, you must provide a certified copy of your birth certificate AND a valid Driver's License or Federal/State Identification. Birth Certificates for those born in Utah may be obtained at the Bear River Health Department 817 W. 950 S. Brigham City, UT 84302 (435) 734-0845.

ITEMS NOT ACCEPTABLE include: a hospital certificate, baptism, or notification-of-birth and California abstracts of birth.) If born in a foreign country, you must provide a certificate of citizenship or naturalization.  A temporary paper driver license is not acceptable. See page 2 of DS-11 for further information.

Children under 16 years old must personally appear and have both legal parents & signatures, prior passport (if any), and certified birth certificate showing parents names.
Social Security numbers must be included on all applications.
Parents must appear and sign for a minor and provide current identification and proof of relationship to child (such as birth certificate) when minor is under the age of 18.
EFFECTIVE Nov 1, 2004- Whether DS-3053 form is used, or the same information is provided on other paper, the Statement of Consent by non-applying parents, for children under the age of 16, must be notarized. The purpose is to prevent forgery and ensure that the person signing the statement has been properly identified. This will further reduce the possibility of a U.S. passport being used in any effort to interfere with the custodial rights of non-applying parents.
