DS-3053 Form Information
If you need a passport for your child, you probably have some important travel plans. It's crucial to fill out your application correctly. Getting a passport for your child requires the correct, properly notarized documents. Here's what you need to know about using a DS-3053 Form.
What Is a DS-3053 Form?
This form’s official name is Statement of Consent or Special Circumstance for Minor Passport. The DS-3053 form is for situations where only one parent or guardian is able to fill out the paperwork.
In most cases, both parents must apply for a minor child’s passport. If the other parent isn’t available for any reason, you must use the DS-3053 form.
The government considers any child under 16 a minor.
Filling out the DS-3053 Form Step by Step
Fill out the DS-3053 form carefully. Don’t sign it. You will date and sign it in front of a notary.
Choose whether you want a passport book or a passport card. A passport card is less expensive and quicker to get. You can use it to travel to and from Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean and Bermuda. A passport card is only valid for entry by land or sea. You can’t use a passport card for international air travel. If you plan to fly internationally, you must get a passport book.
The other parent must fill out the Statement of Consent section. The statement of consent allows you to complete the application for your child. The statement of consent is valid for 90 days.
A licensed, commissioned notary must fill out Section 3.
Sign and date the DS-3053 form in front of the notary.
Include the DS-3053 form in your passport application.
