Don’t forget to renew your passports!

By Slickrock Adventures on February 24, 2016


We find that many international travelers do not pay much attention to their passports, especially the renewal dates. As a result, it is increasingly common for us to see people scrambling at the last minute to try and renew their passports just before the trip they planned months in advance. This article from the NY Times might be of interest: it is an alert from the US Passport Service about an impending rush of passport renewals they are expecting this year due to a program started 10 years ago which encouraged many people to obtain a passport. Now these passports are all due for renewal at the same time, and the Passport Office is advising everyone that there will be delays in obtaining new passports.
