Notice: U.S. Passport changes are coming in 2016. If you are a U.S. citizen and anticipate either renewing an old passport or applying for a new one, there are several changes that will be implemented by year end. Not only will passports be thinner, but also they will be more durable and more secure. So you don’t get caught off guard when you find you do need a passport, my advice to you is that you take a few minutes now to review the changes and check your passport. A minute taken now can save you time, hassles, and money once the 2016 changes go into effect.
The changes are too numerous to describe here, but I suggest that you google “2016 Passport Changes” to see whether any of the changes apply to you.
