Info about Application Form

  • The DS-11 U.S. Passport application and the DS-82 renewal application are both available in the Circuit Court lobby inside the main entrance before the security checkpoint so you can pick up the form(s) to complete at home without having to go through the security checkpoint. Complete in BLACK INK ONLY.  
  • You can complete the form online using the U.S. Department of State site and print prior to coming to the office for your appointment.

Corrections/Errors on Application

If the applicant makes an error on the DS-11, they must complete a new DS-11 form. Corrections made with white-out, crossing out the incorrect information, writing the correction on top of the error, etc., are NOT acceptable. We recommend using the online option, if possible, to avoid having to start over if a mistake is made on the handwritten application.
