Things You'll Need
- Child's passport
Every U.S. citizen is required to have a passport to travel abroad. Minor children and infants are no exception. Among other things, a U.S. passport must bear the signature of the person who holds it. If a child does not yet have the ability to sign her own name, a parent may sign the passport on the child's behalf.
Open your child's passport to the signature page.
Print your child's name on the signature line.
Sign your name next to your child's name.
Write whether you are the child's mother or father in parentheses next to your signature.
