Request New Passport Pages Now!

On November 19th, 2015 the U.S. State Department announced that it will no longer add pages to passports beginning January 1, 2016. We strongly encourage travelers with passports they expect to fill with visas or entry stamps to request additional pages as soon as possible. With the additional pages deadline approaching and the busy holiday travel season here, you should start your request today.

Save yourself hassle and money by adding pages now.  The government fees for additional pages are less than a renewal and all your visas will remain in one passport book.
