As of January 1st, 2016 ALL passport applicants that wish to add pages must now apply for a passport renewal. There is no longer the option to Add Passport Pages after January 1st, 2016.
Prior to January 1st, 2016, the standard passport book came with 28 pages that were used for visas and entry/exit stamps. Of those 28 pages, only 17 that were valid for the visas and stamps. After January 1st, 2016 passports issued are the 28 page book with the free option to get the 52 page passport book. Many countries have a requirement that your passport have a few pages empty when entering their country. If your passport book is close to being full, you will need to apply for a Passport Renewal.
The 52 Page Passport Book
If you travel often, you will appreciate the 52 page passport book. Of those 52 pages, 43 pages are blank and available for visas and entry/ exit stamps.
Adding Additional Pages
Passport applicants wishing to add additional passport visa pages are no longer able to do so. This policy was implemented in late 2015 and officially on January 1st, 2016. Please note that some countries have certain restrictions and may not allow you to enter if you have less than six months validity remaining on your passport. We recommend that you apply for a passport renewal in these instances.
