When I renew my passport, could I get an added page passport instead of a regular one?
by Cherry X,
Question: I travel often, so I always have to add pages to my passport. I will have to renew my passport soon. Could I get more pages on my new passport, so I don't have to send it back after a couple of years? If I can do that, how much does it cost?
Effective January 1, 2016, The U.S. Department of State no longer issues additional visa pages. This service has been discontinued to enhance the security of U.S. Passports and to adhere to international passport standards.
Applicants in need of additional pages in their valid passports must apply for a passport renewal by mail
or, in the case of a passport issued to a minor, obtain a new passport
. Frequent travelers can apply for 52-page passports instead of the regular 24 pages for no additional cost.
Routine service takes 4-6 weeks to complete. If you need your passport sooner, you may request for expedited service which will take 2-3 weeks. There is an additional $60 fee for this service.
You may also apply for same-day service at the Atlanta Passport Agency
or through a private passport expediter
