Second Duplicate Passport

A second duplicate passport is NOT the same as a replacement passport or a passport renewal. A second duplicate passport is needed for the rare circumstances when a traveler needs two passports. This may be due to visiting politically sensitive countries at war or at conflict. Or the traveler may be applying for a visa that takes a few weeks and the traveler needs the passport for an urgent trip. These are rare circumstances so please review the Second Duplicate Passport page carefully.
