Are there programs that will prevent a passport from being issued for a child without parental consent?
The U.S. Department of State's
Children's Passport Issuance Alert Program
works to prevent international parental child abduction. The program allows parents to register their U.S. citizen children under the age of 18. If a passport application is submitted for that registered child, the U.S. Department of State will contact and alert the parent(s).
