Application in Consular Offices
Once you schedule your appointment at the consular office, you will have to wait for the day to come. Meanwhile, or before, you have to gather the necessary documents to complete the procedure. These will vary depending on whether it is an adult, a minor, if it is a renewal, a new passport, and so on.
On the scheduled day, you will have to present all these documents. The official in charge of assisting you will make sure that they are all current, legible and that nothing is missing. Obviously, you will have to prove your identity to do all this. Next step, you will have to make the corresponding payment and accept the taking of the photograph and fingerprints.
With all this information, the official will fill out Form 0P-5. He will ask you the questions that are necessary. Once it is ready, it will proceed to print it and deliver it to the applicant. The latter should check that all data is correct and proceed to sign. And that’s it! This is how the form is filled out at the Consular Offices.
Application in the National Territory
If you apply for a passport in a national territory office, then more or less the same process is followed. You must schedule an appointment online, gather the necessary documents for the process depending on who or who will make the application (of legal age, minor) and what type of application it is (for the first time, renewal).
The scheduled day, you have to approach with all these documents personally. The person in charge of assisting you will evaluate that you meet all the requirements. If you do, you will proceed to make the processing fee payment. Obviously, fingerprinting and photography are also done.
This is when the procedure can vary. In some offices it is the official who will be in charge of filling out the Passport Request Form. He will simply fill it out, with the information you provide, and proceed to print it so that you can review and sign it. This will be how the form will be filled out.
However, you can also have the official deliver the document to you so that fill it by yourself. In this case, you must take into account certain aspects.
- The filling is done with a black ink pen. This will be delivered to the office, if you don’t have one.
- You must use print. The idea is that the information provided is legible.
- Studs, amendments, corrector, etc. are not accepted. The presentation is vital, so read very well what they ask you in each field and keep your answer in mind before putting it.
They won’t ask you for information that you don’t already know. You will only have to indicate your basic information, address information, procedure information and information about the people who could be called in case of emergency. Then you just have to place your fingerprints by the usual ink method, sign and place the photo.
This is mostly done in offices where there is not enough technology to do all the digital paperwork. In modern offices there are fingerprint scanners and a photo-taking system, and it is the official who fills out the form online.
