This form must be printed on 2 pages.

This form must be presented and signed in person at an authorized passport acceptance facility.
You must use this form IF:
1. You have never had a U.S. passport,
2. You are under age 16,
3. If your most recent passport was lost or stolen. If you are applying because your passport was lost or stolen, you will also need to submit Form DS-64.

Please use the following checklist to see if you are eligible to apply with a DS-82:
1. I can submit my most recent passport.
2. I was at least 16 years old when my most recent passport was issued.
3. I was issued my most recent passport less than 15 years ago.
NOTE: Instructions on the current application do not yet reflect this change. The form is scheduled to be replaced in the near future with one containing updated information, but, the old form may continue to be used.
4. I use the same name as on my most recent passport, OR, since my passport was issued, I have had my name changed by marriage or court order and can submit proper documentation to reflect my name change.
If you answered NO to any of the four statements above...STOP! You cannot use form DS-82!!! You must apply on application form DS-11.
