What if one parent cannot be present when applying for a passport for their child under the age of 16?

•    If one parent is unable to be present, that parent must fill out the statement of consent form and it must be submitted with the child’s passport application. The absent parent must have their signature notarized, and provide a copy of the front and back of their driver’s license or non-driver ID.
