CA Press Release
- The U.S. Department of State will no longer add visa pages into U.S. passports beginning January 1, 2016.
- The Final Rule to this effect was published in the Federal Register on November 20, 2015. This Final Rule was published after a 60 day comment period.
- Previously, U.S. passport holders had the option to pay for the insertion of additional 24-page visa inserts when valid passports lacked adequate space for entry or exit visa stamps. The decision to discontinue this service was made to enhance passport security and is consistent with international passport standards.
- Requests for additional 24-page visa inserts will only be accepted until December 31, 2015. This is effective worldwide. Beginning January 1, 2016, applicants in need of additional pages in their valid passports must obtain a new passport.
Q: Why does adding additional pages to a passport make it less secure?
- The visa page inserts used to add additional pages are more easily removable than the original sewn-in visa pages. By removing an insert, a passport holder can hide his/her travel history or use the removed insert to create a counterfeit passport for identification purposes.
Q: Are visas in an expired passport still valid?
The validity of a visa in an expired U.S. passport is dependent upon the host country that issued the visa. Some countries allow travel with two passports (one valid and one expired with valid visas) and some require new visas.
Regular American Citizens Services such as passports services, notary services, and consular records of birth abroad will be by appointment only on Thursdays from 8:30-11:30am.
