The state department allows frequent travelers to hold more than one passport at a time. The second passport has a validity of four years, and one can only get it under two circumstances. The first reason would be that you wish to travel to a nation where you may face security challenges owing to the countries you have visited. The second one would be that you tour a lot and therefore you lack enough time to process visas. In any of these cases, the state department would enable you to hold a second passport. If your reasons for requiring a second passport are in line with the state department’s allowances, then Travel Visa Pro can help you get one. What’s more, we can do it within a day provide that you follow our next day second passport requirements.
An agent will take you through the entire process to ensure that you do not make errors during application. The first thing that we require is that you should be in possession of a valid, undamaged and unaltered passport. If your current passport expires in the coming year, you should make a point to renew it before embarking on an application. You should also provide us with a statement requesting a second passport, and this should contain the drivers behind the request. Essential among our next day second passport requirements is the need to prove the urgency of travel. As such, we accept documents such as plane tickets to foreign countries, official letters from your workplace and other acceptable documents as per the state department. We also require two passport photos, two signed letters of authorization and two DS 82 forms. Our agents are well versed in such matters and will help you out where you face a challenge. They will receive and review your records before submitting them to the state department for approval. The process will be complete by the next day. Thank you!
