What is a DS-11 Form?

The DS-11 Form is a document that individuals intending to become complete United States citizens must complete. This document includes an application for a U.S Passport and should be submitted to the passport acceptance office. If you have reached full legal age and have never been issued a passport before, then you are eligible to submit the file. You must also complete the DS-11 form in case you’ve ever been married or changed your name. It is possible to download the template, print it, fill it manually and mail it to the local agency. However, it’s much easier to use an online application. Insert the required information and submit the document via email. In addition, you may pay for faster processing.

How to complete the DS-11 Form?

Your application should first be approved, then signed. To avoid your document being rejected, it is very important to specify all the required details properly and accurately without any mistakes. It is also necessary to prepare any documentation that needs to be attached in order to prove your United States citizenship. Such documents include confirmation of the application fee paid (check), proof of identity and a recent color photograph.

Fill in the following information into the fillable fields:

  • full name (last, first and middle)
  • date and place of birth
  • sex
  • contact details, including address
  • social security number
  • your previous names (if any)

Apart from that, provide information concerning your parents, spouse and your physical parameters such as height, hair and eye color. Include your contact telephone number and the name and address of someone who can be a contact in case of emergency.

The processing time typically lasts from 4 to 6 weeks. If you want to speed up the process, there is an option to schedule an appointment at your nearest regional passport agency.
