Extra passport pages in my renewed passport

by Rebecca
(Maywood, IL, USA)

Question: I would like to renew my passport now (even though it doesn't expire in the next five years) for a trip around the world. Is it possible to get a renewed passport with extra pages added at the time of renewal? I would like my passport renewed but WITH EXTRA PAGES due to the number of countries I'll be visiting and all the visas. Can I request these pages at the same time I'm renewing the passport?

Thank you!

Answer: Yes, you can order the 52-page passport book instead of the standard 28-page version. Just indicate your choice when you fill out Form DS-82. You can mail the completed application form along with your current passport, one passport photo and payment of fees to the address in the form.

Question: I currently hold a valid passport book and valid passport card. They do not expire for many more years. However, I need to renew my passport book because I am running out of visa pages. Can I just renew my passport book WITHOUT renewing my passport card? Can I travel by sea to the Caribbean with my passport card while I am waiting for my passport book to be renewed?

Answer: Yes, you can renew your passport book without renewing your card. For good measure, you may request for the 52-page passport book, especially if you are planning on traveling a lot in the next few years.

Also, you may travel to the Caribbean via sea using your passport card.
