Current regulations prohibit the possession of more than one valid or potentially valid U.S. passport at any one time, unless under circumstances specifically authorized by the Secretary of State. The only justification considered for issuance of a second valid passport is an urgent need for international travel while the bearer's full validity passport is unavailable due to visa processing at other embassies.
Since September 26, 2005, it is no longer possible to extend a bearer's second passport; you must apply for a new one by following the instructions below. Second passports have a standard validity of only two years.
In order to apply for a second passport, you must come in person to the U.S. Consulate. Please click here to book an appointment on-line.
Please bring the following with you:
Complete form DS-82;
One (1) valid passport photo;
Current valid full-validity U.S. passport
A written request from your company explaining the need for a second passport; and
- The $110 application fee.
- The Second Passport Letter form.
Note: if your current passport is unavailable due to visa processing delays contact us.
