About U.S. Passport Applications, 1795-1925

The U.S. government has issued passports to American citizens since 1789, through different agencies throughout the years. Passports were not required of U.S. citizens for foreign travel until World War I and passports were required for a short time during the Civil War (Aug. 19, 1861-Mar. 17, 1862). An Executive Order given in 1915, and then later an act of Congress given in 1918, established the passport requirement for citizens traveling abroad lapsing during World War I through treaties with Germany, Austria, and Hungary in 1921. In 1941, with the onset of World War II, the Congressional act of 1918 was reinstated. U.S. citizens have been required to carry a passport for foreign travel ever since and now, when going anywhere outside the U.S. (includes cruise ships).

This database contains passport applications from 1795-1925, including emergency passport applications (passports issued abroad) from 1877-1907. It also contains passport application registers for 1810-1817, 1830-1831, and 1834-1906.

What you may find on a Passport Applications:

Name of applicant, birth date/age, birthplace, residence, date of application or issuance of passport, fathers and/or husbands name, fathers and/or husbands birth date or age, fathers and/or husbands birthplace, fathers and/or husbands residence, wife's name, date and place of immigration to the U.S., years in which have resided in the U.S., naturalization date and place, occupation, and physical characteristics.

Some passport applications include a photo of the applicant. To receive a U.S. passport, a person had to submit proof of U.S. Citizenship, usually a letter, affidavits of witnesses, and certificates from clerks or notaries. Sometimes these other documents are included as part of the application.

A variety of passport application forms were used throughout the years. By 1888 there were separate application forms for native citizens, naturalized citizens, and derivative citizens so information on passports may vary.
