Emergency Contact Information for U.S. Citizens

Change to Extra Visa Pages Service

  • After December 31, 2015, there will be no more extra visa pages added to U.S. passports.
  • Instead, 52-page passport books will be issued at no extra cost to U.S. citizens applying from outside the United States.
  • Renew your passport early to make sure you have enough blank pages for visa stamps from other countries. Some require two blank pages for entry and exit.
  • See travel.state.gov for more information on entry, exit, and foreign visa requirements.
