Information on Passport Denials

Why Would My Passport Be Denied?

The US State Department issue passport denials for several reasons.  For example if you have a warrant out for your arrest, or have back child support, or are currently in prison you may be denied your passport application.  Getting a passport is not a right.  The US State Department uses discretion in issuing passports to US citizens.  It is their decision whether you are given a passport.
