Common Passport Mistakes


If you’re traveling abroad, there are tons of passport mistakes that might hold you up at security. Some of these mistakes are easily avoidable, while others might just surprise you!



1. Not checking the expiration date

While this seems obvious, it’s also easily overlooked. Ensure your expiration date is far enough in the future because some countries won’t accept passports that will expire in six months!

2. Waiting too long to apply

Expedited shipping will cost you $60, and even then it'll take three weeks to receive your new passport.

3. Not correctly filling out the form

Luckily, the correction process is free for typos made to your passport.


4. Not updating your name after a change

Passports don’t automatically update, so when a name change occurs you’ll have to go through the renewal process.


5. Having too many stamps

Who knew? Some countries have a requirement for the number of blank pages that travelers must have in their books.
