This affidavit is required to be included with a passport application only when the applicant for a passport is unable to
establish his or her identity to the satisfaction of a person authorized to accept passport applications. The applicant

applicable, eleven through thirteen), sign when requested to do so by the same authorized acceptance agent who
accepted the passport application, and present some form of current photo identification of his or her own.
