MAILING OF PASSPORTS
Passport Services will not mail a U.S. passport to a private address outside the United States or Canada. If you do not live at the address listed in the “mailing address”, then you must put the name of the person and mark it as “In Care Of” in item # 8. If your mailing address changes prior to receipt of your new passport, please contact the National Passport Information Center. If you choose to provide your email address in Item #6 on this application, Passport Services may use that information to contact you in the event there is a problem with your application or if you need to provide information to us. You may receive your newly issued passport book and/or card and your returned citizenship evidence in two separate mailings. If you are applying for both a U.S. passport book and passport card, you may receive three separate mailings; one with your returned citizenship evidence, one with your newly issued passport book, and one with your newly issued passport card.
