Children's Passport Issuance Alert Program

U.S. Passport Name-Check System
Separate from the two-parent signature requirement for U.S. passport issuance, parents may also request that their children's names be entered in the U.S. passport name-check system.

The Children's Passport Issuance Alert Program (CPIAP) provides:
  • Notification to parents of passport applications made on behalf of their minor children, and
  • Denial of passport issuance if appropriate court orders are on file with the CPIAP.
