I obtained a new passport as an RSO in Florida last year just before the new “scarlet letter” law was passed. It contained no mark.
After reading on your website the story about the man detained for just this reason, I re-applied for my passport thinking they would automatically imprint the poison on my new passport. They did not.
So, I filled out a form, DS-5504 and I wrote in the name change section, “registered sex-offender” and I included a letter summarizing my reasons for wanting the correct passport and stating that I should not have to pay again.
Lo and behold, 6 weeks later, I received my shiny new passport WITH the mark of the beast.
