Need Your Passport Renewed?
There has been a great deal of information lately about passports, renewing them, and making sure they are up-to-date.
That's a key if you travel outside of the US. Always check your passport before you make your reservations. Do you know where it is? When does it expire? Where do you go to get a new photo taken?
Here are some interesting facts and some tips for taking care your passport is absolutely in tip top shape.
If you need a new photo...don't take a selfie. I had mine taken at Costco. The price was right and they made sure it looked exactly like the requirements.
On your photo...don't smile, don't wear your glasses, hats, temporary tattoos, uniforms, or headphones. Unacceptable photos are the number one reason passport applications are denied, according to the State Department.
Why would you need a new passport if your old one is not expired? If you've had extreme plastic surgery, tattooed your face, or lost or gained a large amount of weight...you could be required to get a new passport.
