Passport Information

Guide to passports and needed travel documents

If you are planning to visit the United States, make sure all of your official travel documents are current, as you will need those to get in the country and return home.

Passport Requirements

All visitors from abroad who are planning to visit the USA must have a passport valid for at least six months longer than their intended stay in the U.S., unless they are exempted by country-specific agreements.

For families traveling together, each member of the family must have his or her own passport, including infants and children.

Lost or Stolen Passports

If your passport is lost or stolen, immediately report it to the police and contact your local consulate or embassy of your country of citizenship for a replacement. Most consulates have information on their websites for canceling a lost or stolen passport.
