Second Valid Passport


Even individuals who travel frequently can become confused about the visa requirements needed for extended visits to some countries. In order to acquire necessary visas, a second valid passport may be necessary. Getting a second passport is also a good idea when traveling between countries where security may be an issue. It is important to understand that when applying for a second passport, you must be able to give a valid reason for your request, and the government must approve the decision.

In some instances, visas that show you have been to other specific countries may deny you entry into their country. Another valid reason that a second passport might be granted is that you need a passport for immediate travel but it is unavailable because of delays in the application process. Basically, if you are able to complete your travels with a single original passport, the second passport will not be issued.
