No More Addng Pages To Your Passports

I just read that the State Department will no longer add pages to passports after this year. Instead it will issue jumbo passports. Passports will still Last 10 years.  You will have to get a new passport when you need more pages.

Last year I had to get more pages added to my passport. This year I needed a new passport. The cost adds up. So I probably would like the jumbo passport idea.

Why would you need to add pages ? No one has stamped mine in, I can't even remember the last time it was stamped. Maybe.......Antigua.......over 20 years ago?

Would a " jumbo passport " look like one of those big prize checks they give out on tv ?

Thanks for the heads up. I have been debating whether or not to get new pages. The next one will be my fourth since I started international travel 46 years ago. One time we did an almost three month voyage, circumnavigation of Africa as part of it, got stamped so much that toward the end I was worried there wouldn't be any more space. We used to laugh, the smaller the country the bigger the stamp. Brazil has to be the worst. Don't have to worry about the next cruise though, just Canada and the US.

We needed a multiple of visas and we were advised to reserve a whole page for each. Since my passport was nine years old by this time, I did not have enough pages.

I have not seen a jumbo passport as they won't be issued until 2016. I assume that they will just have an additional 20 pages inside. I think that the dimensions will be the same.

Unfortunately,I have never received one of those big prize cheeks seen onTV although I keep hoping that someday Publishers Clearinghouse will appear at my door with just such a check. It hasn't happened yet.
