What form should I fill out if I want to apply for a passport card after already having a passport b

If you possess a passport book but have never had a passport card, you can request passport card by using form DS-82. You must submit your passport book as evidence to obtain the card. (If your passport is still valid, it's advisable to submit the renewal application with a separate letter stating that you don't want to cancel the passport book.)

However, if you previously owned a passport card but have lost it, you cannot apply for a new card with the passport book using DS-82. Instead, you must follow the process for a lost or stolen passport and apply for a new passport card.

These instructions also apply if you currently have a passport card and are applying for a passport book.
