Passport Application Forms
It is now possible to print passport application forms in Portable Document Format (PDF). Adobe PDF files require Acrobat Reader software from Adobe Systems Inc.

The forms you print must be clear and sharp. Applications that are blurred or illegible will not be accepted. They must be printed in black print on white paper. The paper must be 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches, with no holes or perforations, at least medium (20 lb.) weight, and with a matte surface. Thermal paper, dye-sublimation paper, special inkjet paper, and other shiny papers are not acceptable.

Some printers will reduce the photograph area on the passport application to less than 2x2 inches. Please make sure that the photograph area on the printed application form is 2x2 inches to ensure that the photographs you submit (also 2x2 inches in size) can be correctly attached.
