Where to Find and Print a Passport Application Form

Passport applications are required for anyone who wishes to travel outside of the United States — you need a passport for this type of travel. The application process can be confusing and time-consuming, so it’s important to know where to find and print the necessary forms. Here’s a guide on how to get started.

Online Resources

The first step in obtaining a passport is finding the right forms. The U.S. Department of State website has all the necessary forms available for download, including the DS-11 passport application form and other supplemental forms. The website also has helpful instructions on how to fill out each form correctly.

Printing at Home

Once you’ve downloaded the forms, you can print them out at home or at a local print shop. It’s important to make sure that you use high-quality paper and ink when printing your passport application forms, as any smudges or errors could delay your application process. Additionally, make sure that all of your documents are printed on regular-sized printer paper and that they are single-sided only.

Post Office or Library


If you don’t have access to a printer, you can sometimes also find passport application forms at your local post office, mailing shop, or library. Many post offices have copies of the DS-11 form available for customers, and many libraries also have copies available for printing. It’s important to note that these locations may charge a fee for printing services, so be sure to ask before you begin printing your documents.

Overall, finding and printing a passport application form is an essential part of the passport application process. By following these steps, you can ensure that you have all of the necessary forms ready before submitting your application.
