This is a Georgia USA Passport Affidavit that can be notarized by a Georgia notary public to verify that the copy of an American passport is an exact reproduction. The U.S. State Department recommends that U.S. citizens traveling abroad carry, in addition to their original passport, copies of the passport identity page in the event the original is lost or stolen. You may also be asked to submit a notarized copy of your passport for employment or other official business. This form will establish that the passport copy is true. It does not establish that the passport itself is authentic or that you are the legitimate holder of the passport.
