How to answer Question 20 on form DS-82?

by Victor
(New York, NY)

Question: My wife an I are considering taking a cruise later this summer or early this fall. We are considering places throughout Europe but do not know exactly where or which seas and ports (i.e. Adriatic, Aegean, Baltic, Mediterranean, North?).

Both me and my wife have passports that we got on our trip to Italy around 9 years ago so we just want to renew and we both qualify for the DS-82 form. However, since we do not know the exact location at this time we do not know how to fill out question 20 on that form. How specific does it have to be?

Answer: You can just write N/A or "unknown" on question 20 of Form DS-82. You can also just leave it blank. Passport services understands that many American citizens renew their passports without having specific travel plans.
