Dear Sir / Madam,

Have a good time,

I have an inquiry here and I am seeking for your view on this matter.

I am a non US citizen father of minor US citizen (5 years old), my daughter's US passport is expired.


would to tell you that I am unable at present time to get into US territory to sign the papers required for reissuing/renewal a new US passport for my daughter.

My question to you in respect of renewal/reissuing a new US passport , is it possible to reissuing a new US passport without my approval even in presence of the mother of the child in US , mean can the mother (who is a US citizen) signs the papers required for reissuing/renewal US passport for the minor in my behalf.

Sincerely,

Hi there! Thank you for using this service. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'll be helping you with your questions today.

If the child is under the age of 16 and you, the non-applying parent, cannot be present, then you must complete a Statement of Consent (form DS-3053) to be submitted with the application. The mother cannot sign the applciation on your behalf.

Here is the information for the Statement of Consent: http://travel.state.gov/passport/forms/ds3053/ds3053_846.html.

I would to notify you that it's not a process of issuance of US passort ffor the first time, it is about renewal for the expired passport.

Murad,

The same applies. A new passport is issued to replace an old, invalid one. They don't just add a stamp. They send a new book.
