Additional Requirements and Information for Minors under 16

Please be sure to comply with the very important additional requirements when renewing passports for children under age 16, which requires both parents/legal guardians to consent to the issuance of the passport. For applicants under age 16, parent(s)/Guardian(s) must submitevidence of their relationship to the minor applicant. Parents/legal guardians must also present IDs (passport, driver’s license, ID card, etc.), and submit photocopies of the IDs at the appointment.

Additional Requirements and Information for All Minors Age 16 & 17

Minors ages 16-17 with their own identification can apply for a passport by themselves.  However, it is recommended that at least one parent appear in person with the minor to identify him/her and to show parental awareness.

NOTE:  Although the two-parent consent requirement does not apply to minors aged 16 or 17, per Department regulations a passport generally will not be issued to a minor if a parent or legal guardian who has custodial rights over a minor has notified the Department in writing that he or she objects to issuance of the passport.

Examples of Parental Awareness

  • Having a parent accompany the minor when applying, or
  • A signed statement consenting to issuance of a passport from at least one parent (should be accompanied by a photocopy of that parent’s ID).

How to Submit a U.S. Passport Application in Person:

Please follow steps 1-7 below for information on how to submit an application in person at the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm and if you are not eligible for sending your application by mail.

Please use Form DS 11 (PDF 89 KB). You can either print the form and complete it by hand, or you can complete the form online and print it. Please disregard the instructions printed on pages 1-2 since that information pertains to passport renewal when residing in the U.S.

Please note that according to U.S. law (26 USC 6039E) applicants for U.S. passports must provide a correct Social Security Number on the passport application. Failure to provide a Social Security Number if you have been issued one can result in a $500 fine enforced by the IRS. If you have never been issued a Social Security Number, write zeros in the boxes. The U.S. Embassy in Stockholm does not have access to Social Security Administration records.

When applying for a U.S. passport in person, evidence of U.S. citizenship must be submitted with Form DS-11. All documentation submitted as citizenship evidence will be returned to you. These documents will be delivered with your newly issued U.S. passport.
