You Can Now Apply For Passport Online
Book that trip overseas. You can now apply for a U.S. Passport card online. The State Department is launching a 90-day pilot program. It allows U.S. citizens to apply for the travel cards digitally, instead of having to mail in their current passport book and other forms. The agency hopes it will help save them time and money. Participants in the pilot must have a valid passport, upload a digital picture and make an online payment in using Pay.gov. The pilot program is the department's main initiative to meet a presidential order to simplify customer service interactions. The wallet-sized passport card is a low-cost alternative to the passport book.
