Who can apply for a child’s passport?
Someone with parental responsibility for the child must apply for the passport. Both parents’ details need to be provided on the application but both signatures are not required. If you cannot provide the other parent’s details, you need to say why (for example, you’re the only parent named on the birth certificate or you adopted the child on your own). If a passport has been obtained for your child without your details included, try contacting the passport advice line.
