Applying for a US passport - STICKY
Please check out these links (US State Department & US Postal Service) for applying for a US passport -
First-time applicants (most of us are !!) - check out this page - http://travel.state.gov/passport/get...first_832.html.
Applying for a US Passport - US State Department - http://travel.state.gov/passport/passport_1738.html.
The Passport Application Wizard is an helpful link - http://travel.state.gov/passport/for.../ds11_842.html.
Also check out the Passport Card link in the State Department website at http://travel.state.gov/passport/ppt...card_3926.html. I would strongly recommend getting one and slipping it in your wallet in the slot vacated by the green card.
Applying for a US Passport through USPS - http://www.usps.com/passport/. This may be the easiest way for most of us.
Online Status Check - There is a link in the state department website to check the status of your application online - http://travel.state.gov/passport/get...atus_2567.html
I found this a useful site - http://www.newcitizen.us
