Passport Issue

by Nileshni
(Suva, Fiji lslands)

Question: My passport expires on February 2 of next year and I need to travel to the U.S. for my brother's wedding. I am not able to renew my passport as the Fijian Embassy is out of passports.

Will I have problems with my expired passport when I go back to Fiji? I am planning to be in the USA by January 16. That would mean that by the time I go back to Fiji, my passport will be expired. I do also have a 10-year multiple entry visa attached to this passport.

Please advise.

Answer: If your passport will expire during the time you will be in the United States, then you need to renew your passport before you return to Fiji. You will not be allowed to board your plane if your passport is expired.

In order to process the renewal quickly, you can either schedule an appointment at a regional passport agency or have a qualified passport expediting service submit the application for you. Either way, your passport renewal application can be processed as fast as the same day.

After your passport application is processed, your current passport will be returned to you along with your new one.
