How to Add Pages to a Passport

How to Add Pages to a PassportThere are unique and
specific passport requirements for each international destination. In most
cases, United States citizens cannot travel with a passport that has less than
four blank pages. However, each airline may have varying restrictions on the
amount of blank passport pages that they require in order to allow passengers
to board the plane. In order to play it safe, passport holders should apply for
extra pages when they have less than eight blank pages available. Technically,
the official recommendation is that citizens add passport pages when there are
only four remaining blank pages. Citizens that know they will travel often,
should request additional passport pages when they obtain their passport.

There are specific and unique requirements for travel to each country. Some
countries have specific requirements for United States passport holders, such
as a required minimum of blank pages. They may also require that passports do
not expire for one full year from the date of entry into the country. In
addition, there are unique requirements implemented by each airline. Some
airlines will not allow passengers to board international flights unless they
have a certain number of blank pages.

Travelers that know in advance that they travel a lot for work or pleasure, may
request additional passport pages when their original passport is issued. There
is no additional fee regardless of when the additional passport pages are
added. However, the passport agency will impose a fee if the passport holder
requires an expedited passport
