Getting your passport

I have no idea when or how I am going to make this decision about where to go on my trip. But one thing I do know is that I am going to have to get a passport. Having never been out of the country, and not being sure I would get the chance, I’ve never looked into something like this.

So let’s look into what’s required in order to get a passport. The first thing you are going to have to do is gather the correct documentation. The first thing you’ll need is your birth certificate, or if you aren’t from the United States, you are going to need proof of citizenship. You are going to also need some kind of ID, maybe a drivers’ license, or something that both your picture and signature is on. Should you not have a picture ID, you will need at least two of the following: your Social Security card, credit card or library card. You are also allowed to take an identifying witness if you were not to have enough of the other identification.

You will also have to have a passport photo. The government is somewhat particular as to what they will allow as a passport photo. Your face must be clearly see, and it has to be a very specific size. So your best option is going to be to go to a drug store or grocery store that takes passport photos, and have them do it.
Next you will have to either go to a place where they have passport applications, I know that the main post office in your area should have one, or you will need to fill your application out online. You will need to answer everything they ask… I am going here for just. Let me know if you have any questions.
