Reply To: Passport revoked

SO Advocate

I have a question though. On the letter, that was posted above, the first page at the bottom, the last sentence at the bottom, tends to lead me to believe that a RSO applying for a passport will automatically denied.

At section g states: The Department shall not issue a passport card to an applicant who is a covered sex offender as defined in 22 U.S.C. 212b(c)(1).

it is also at

but at
it is not even listed.

nor is it at

So, was this a new section that was added that the last two urls do not know about (though they are gov’t sites)? More so, does this subsection mean what I think it means? That a passport will not even be given even with the identifer? I am confused. Can someone clear this up?
