My wife and I are planning on going to Germany to visit her father next year. Our passports are valid through 2009.
Graydon is three years old and Kayla is five years old. We now have to get them passports.
I just looked up the rules and I thought I would post them here.
It is going to cost us $164 so that our kids have the ability to travel abroad for five years.
It is going to take us about half a day as well...
What a joke.
Here are the requirements:
The nearest passport office is the post office at 1501 South Clinton. Phone is 427-7301. Hours for passports are:
Mon – Fri 8 AM – 4:30 PM
Sat 9 AM – 2 PM
Take the following:
Kayla and Graydon must appear in person
Forms filled out in black ink
Official birth certificate for each child
Both parents must go and both parents must take their official (Raised printing) birth certificate AND a valid drivers license OR
One parent must go and the other parent must fill out form DS-3053 and it must be notarized. 2 Passport photos per kid.
Cost is $82 per kid. Call post office for methods of paying, some require exact cash.
After you drop off a valid passport application at the post office you will generally get your passport back within six weeks…
