Default Passport Form Printing

I don't see any instructions in the guidance noes on printing.

Should I adjust the page to fit on letter paper or leave it as it is which
cuts off a little at the bottom with the tags that I assume the computer looks for when scanning?

Adjust it so all the information on the page is printed including the tags. It's probably designed for A4 size paper not US Letter size.

What country's passport form? The British form is available as a US Letter sized PDF.

So it is, I stand corrected.

Thanks, too late now but I adjusted it to fit the letter size.

The PDF I got from the passport site was A4 is there another?

Yes, there is. If you click through properly the correct form you will download to submit an overseas application from the States is US Letter size.

Don't use a UK form if you're applying from overseas. It will be rejected. You need Form OS.

You may say that but when you print it full size the form does not fit on a letter size page, that was my initial problem. The properties say 8.5 x 11 bit the whole page does not print, (just tried the first page again) using shrink to fit gets everything on the page, my form will be in Durham in the next couple of hours so we'll see.

I had no issues, what are the minimum margins of your printer?
