Passport is almost full from entry/exit stamps? What Next

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a few years left on my passport and I have only one page for entry/exit stamps left after my last trip to Philippines.

 

I plan on returning to Philippines in April and going to Thailand for a few days.

 

Surely you don't have to get a new passport, Does the US immigration at an airport can they put some additional blank pages in your passport?


Just when you think you have TDS eradicate,  a new case shows up.

They discontinued adding new pages to an existing passport.  You would need to get a new passport.  You can order the new passport with more pages on it at no additional cost.  Just got mine.  Was told it could take up to 2 months to get it but received mine in a little over 2 weeks.

PS: I had about 18 months left on my old passport.

I got the jumbo size when I got mine renewed in 2016))) It's the size of a little prayer book)))


Not a newbie but lost my old info years ago) I have been through this process before --all the way through naturalization-- This site has always been a great help to me.

I am going to have to get the jumbo size one when I get my passport renewed next year. Luckily I still have a few pages left in my passport so I can travel a little bit more. But what pissed me off when I was working in Afghanistan is that I had to fly in/out of Dubai in order to get to Kandahar Afghanistan. They would seriously stamp the page twice EVERY SINGLE time going in and going out of Dubai.    So I have many pages of just inbound and outbound stamps into the UAE.

Ukraine was like that. Never saw a page they didn't want to stamp))))

I must have been lucky,  Ukraine consolidated all my stamps on just two pages 


YMMV
