It’s been difficult to ignore.......

It’s been difficult to ignore all of the changes, ambiguity, and drama that has surrounded passports required for overseas luxury holidays. With the ever-changing regulations and guidelines, it’s crucial to double-check everything before finalizing any preparations. With that in mind, here are a few passport tips to help you travel internationally with ease.

It’s Critical to Gather All of the Required Items for Your Luxury Travel Vacation:

Make sure you have all of the essential items before going to a government facility to start the passport application process. The first thing you should do is go to http://travel.state.gov/passport/passport 1738.html, which is the passport website. You may fill up and print the basic application form there. If you are unable to do so, contact a luxury holiday specialist at your local travel agency. It’s possible they have one. If it doesn’t work, go to your nearest post office, library, or passport office. You and the passport clerks will save a lot of time if you bring this paperwork with you. You will also need to supply your own passport photographs. These aren’t just any photographs.

There are extremely stringent limits that must be followed, and passport photos must be shot by qualified passport photographers. Look in your phone book under passport photographs or inquire at your local post office passport center to find one near you. You’ll need to provide evidence of citizenship as well. This might be a birth certificate, citizenship documentation, or a prior passport, and all of these documents must be official copies. A state-issued picture ID is also required. If you don’t have any or all of these items, see the website for further information.

Apply as soon as possible:

You’ve probably heard that passports have been difficult to come by recently. It is true that the average time for ordinary duty was six weeks, and one or two weeks for expatiated service. These timelines have now been increased to 12 weeks for standard and 3 to 4 weeks for expedited. This may be upsetting to some, but it won’t be if you apply early. If you don’t have a passport and are thinking of going on a luxury travel holiday to a foreign nation, then bite the bullet and obtain one! It is preferable to apply for one as soon as possible. If you sign up now, you won’t have to pay for any already used services.

And because passports are valid for 10 years, even if you don’t use it right away, you could in the future. Visit http://www.amtvacations.com/american-express-vacations.html for more information on organizing your luxury travel vacation.


Almost everyone has heard a story of a misplaced application. Agencies claim they never got it, that it was lost in the mail, or that it was refused a week before they were to travel. Again, applying early will address a lot of these issues, but if you don’t have that choice, follow up. If you apply in person, retain your receipt as well as any paperwork confirming your application.

You may also use the website to discover if your passport is being processed. You’ll need your application number, which may be located on your papers, to do so. Send your application with a signature requirement and a request for received documentation if you’re mailing it. If you have any issues, phone the agency right away to follow up.

Passports are now necessary for every American going outside of the United States, from luxury globe cruises to a weekend in Mexico. It might be inconvenient, but it can also be painless if you do your part. Ensure that you have all of your papers and documents together. Please submit your application as soon as possible. If you travel frequently, you should already have a passport. Also, make certain that you follow up on your application. Now that you’ve equipped yourself with knowledge, go obtain your passport!
