Has anyone tried to renew their Passport on the travel.state.gov site. I cant print the form or create the form to print. Any help is most appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Many sites don’t like to play unless you use IE Explorer.
I have renewed from the info available on-line.
Try this, I just used it today with Google Chrome browser.
I just got my wife’s and mine back a couple of weeks back. Just follow the instructions to the letter and be sure the pictures are according to the bureaucrat’s dictates and all will be well. Piece of cake actually. Keep scans of your current passport, naturally.
I have tried this all from a Gov computer and my home computer. I use mozilla at home and IE at work so I don’t think its a browser issue. It is a secure PDF and I never see create form at the bottom. The print icon and file print are not available.
Were you able to print the form w/your info on it.
Get a Travel Agent to do it.
It’s a no fee Passport. Government.
Yes. Actually, I was able to save it as a pdf, and then I saved the pdf.
The Price is Right.
Until you complete the process, the PDF will be an interim PDF with protections to prevent printing.
I found that I had to launch Internet Explorer with Run As Administrator, and then the website ran fine. Otherwise, Windows "helped" me too much.
I think if you want to apply online it won’t let you print until the very end, but you can go here and either fill out online, then print, or print a blank form, fill it out, then mail it. I recommend that latter.
“Itâs a no fee Passport. Government.”
In that case ask someone else at work who recently got a government passport, you may not get that from the open State Dept site, there may be a different application form. Or ask your security people, they might know.
What do you mean “run as a administrator” ? Can you please be mor descriptive please.
You won't see it on a desktop icon. You will see it if you have Internet Explorer in your Quick Launch bar, or if you navigate to Internet Explorer from the Start menu.
