about the passport

If you are just apply for a passport, make 2 copies of your application form---keep one for your records, attach the other to your trip application papers (obviously leaving the passport info spaces on the trip application form blank).

The key thing is that we get you registered using the SAME spelling of your name as it will appear in your passport. We need to make sure to use the same name for booking the airline ticket.

Specify the trip dates on your passport application and inquire about the length of time for processing....and if necessary, find out about expediting the processing.
