What is an Second Valid Passport? Do I Qualify?

Second Valid U.S. Passport: Information & Requirements Image of a U.S. Passport for Expedited Second Valid Passport Requirements and Information

You are qualified to submit a second valid passport application if you still have and can submit
your current U.S. passport but need a second valid passport due to:

  • You require an entry visa and do not have time to acquire it between other booked trips;
    OR

  • Security Reasons (ex. conflicting visa stamps)

Did you know that U.S. citizens can hold two valid passports at the same time?
For whatever reason, most people still seem to be in the dark about Second Valid Passports.
If you are a frequent traveler who doesn’t have time to get visas before you leave for your next trip,
or if you need to travel to a country that won’t allow you to enter if you have Israel visa stamps in your
passport, you can get a second passport. These are also referred to as “two year passports” because
they are issued for a limited two-year validity.

Please Note that Second Valid Passports are issued solely at the discretion of the U.S. Department of State.
