With many American states given the reprieve until 2017 to comply with identification requirements, having a passport for travel within the United States still isn’t a thing. In the future, that may change. In the meantime you still need your passport for traveling outside the United States. Here are some of the most common passport issues we see daily and how to handle them.
Your passport is within 6 months of expiring.
You might as well consider your passport expired if there is less than six months left until the expiration date. Go ahead and renew your passport.
The country you’re entering requires a blank page in your passport for stamping upon entry, and you do not have the blank pages available.
Until January 2016, you could add pages to your passport. Now you need to go through the renewal process to add pages, no matter how much extra time is left until expiration.
