DS-11 Passport Form

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have few questions here :

i am about to apply my passport. Does the DS-11 form has to be print out and i write with pen or i can type everything and print it out because i wasn't able to fill the form online on PDF like i did with my N-400.

And what kind of type payment do they accept? Cash / debit only or can use credit card also?

And what do i need to update my SSN at the office? Do i need to fill out any form ?Or when i get to the office, what the reason i should tell the employee? To update my citizenship status?

 

Thank you

 

 


N-400:

Oct 2  : Sent N-400

Oct 3  : Cash

Oct 6  : Noa

Oct 30 : Biometric

Aug 10 : Interview Letter in Mail

Sept 18 : Interview ( Passed )

Sept 25 : Oath Letter in Mail

Oct 8 : Oath Ceremony

If you're applying through USPS, you'll find this useful, it has all the information you need including some of what's listed below: https://www.usps.com/international/passports.htm

 

You can actually fill out the application online through the DHS website: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/requirements/forms.html (e.g. DS-11 Form Filler) and print it out. They'll give you a bunch of prompts, after filling it out and confirming things you'll be given a download link for the PDF. This likely make it a lot faster for a passport to process since there needn't be someone to transcribe the written info. Also DO NO SIGN the printed form, only sign after the clerk at USPS (or wherever you do the application) tells you to sign it.

 

If you're applying for USPS, there'll be two payments. One will be to the U.S. Department of State which needs to be a a check, money order or stuff like that, and nothing else (e.g. no cash, debit/credit etc...). As for the USPS fee you can pay that in any way you wish, that's typically $35 dollars excluding if you need your passport photo taken (another $15, but rates may vary). The USPS website above will give you all the info you need.

 

As for updating your SSN record I believe a passport will suffice (maybe your old SSN? I'm unsure). But basically you just have to show up to a local office with your proof of citizenship (e.g. passport), ideally at least 10 days after your oath since it takes time to update.

 

 


Citizenship Journey:

 

(Month 1)-   N-400 sent: 12/20/17

(Month 2)-   Fingerprints: 01/11/18

(Month 8)-   Interview: 07/30/18

(Month 9)-   Oath Ceremony: 08/23/18

 

Officially a U.S. Citizen!

No problem. At my oath they gave us voter's registration forms. If they didn't do that in your case, it'll depend on your state. Your profile says California, so presumably that's where you're voting. It seems that they allow you to register online through: https://registertovote.ca.gov/?ref=voteusa
