For U.S. Travelers With Full Passports, Time To Get A New One

WASHINGTON (AP) — Attention, international business travelers: The U.S. government will stop providing extra pages for visas and stamps when your passports fill up.

         As of Jan. 1, the State Department is eliminating the 24-page inserts that Americans can buy when their passports lack space for entry and exit stamps.

         A statement says the decision will enhance security and bring the U.S. in line with international passport standards.

         That means if your U.S. passport fills up, you'll soon have to buy a new one.

         U.S. citizens can purchase a 28-page or 52-page passport.

         To help frequent travelers, the department says it's issued the larger passport at no additional cost to all applicants outside the U.S. since October 2014.
