Addition of Extra Pages to Passports Ending 2015

In late March, the Department of State announced that as of Dec 31, 2015, it will no longer add more pages to existing passports. Instead, travelers who run out of room on the visa pages will have to renew.

With the new rules, the new passports will have 52 pages, of which 43 will be blank. That's an increase from the current standard of 28 and 18.

It is still possible to get additional pages added to a current passport by sending to the Department of State before December 18th. The cost is $85 and will take from four to six weeks. A renewed passport costs $110 and will take about the same amount of time.

Both processes can be expedited for an additional fee.
