Can anyone tell me the process for obtaining US passport for a newborn?
it is a very easy process to obtain one. First off, you will need your baby's birth certificate. Once you get that, go to this web page that has all the informations for applying for new passport:
The application form is available on this website. You will need two passport size pictures of your baby, which you can get done at walgreens or longs or any other studio. You can send the application fee in the form of your personal check.
Once you are ready, locate one of the passport processing centers that is closest to you , using the above website. For minors, it is required that both parents be present while turning in the application for passport. Other wise you will have to get a no objection form ( also available on the website) and the respective spouse to sign it.
All this information is also given on the passport web site.
Hope this helps
As Vandhana said its a very easy process... Check with your cityhall first..
Here in my place, cityhall has everything needed for passport including photoservice too..
All we did was going to cityhall with the baby , birthcertificate and checkbook.. We had to fill in an application form there. Cityclerk will take the baby's photo and check both parents id. Thats it and you will get the passport mailed to your house..
All the work was done in 10-15 mts. Hope it helps.
