Adding Pages

This service was discontinued on January 1, 2016. Previously, U.S. passport holders had the option to pay for the insertion of an additional 24-page insert when valid passports lacked adequate space for new visas and new entry/exit stamps. The decision to discontinue this service was made to enhance the security of the passport and to abide by international passport standards.

To mitigate the impact on frequent travelers, the Department began issuing 52-page passports to all applicants outside the United States starting October 1, 2014, for no additional cost.

Applicants in need of additional pages in their valid passports must now obtain a new passport. Please see instructions elsewhere on this website for adult and minor passport renewals.
