Is 'Ik hoef ook een paspoort aan te vragen' correct? It's marked wrong, but I didn't report because I am not sure if it's correct.

Hoef (from hoeven) is only used when you're making a negative sentence. Essentially hoeven is the negative form of moeten.

This is interesting. Is there a site where I can learn more about the use of hoeven and moeten?

What about "Ik heb ook een paspoort nodig aanvragen" Is that correct too?

Heb nodig is only used when you need a thing, like water.
