Adding Supplemental Visa Pages
An adult passport holder does not need to appear in person to add supplemental pages. A third party may submit the required documents as noted below on your behalf. You must schedule an appointment for this service even if not appearing in person.
If your passport is in good condition and will be valid for at least one more year, you may apply for additional visa pages, to a maximum of 2 additional sets of visa pages. If your passport is worn or in poor condition, for security reasons, a consular officer may decline to add visa pages into your passport and you will need to apply for a new passport.
- Step 1: Please read the instructions below
- Step 2: Please make an appointment online ***A separate appointment is required for each passport requesting extra pages. ***

How many pages can I add?
Each visa page insert is 24 pages (12 pages, front and back). You can add pages twice to the same passport, for a total of 48 pages. If you are adding pages to your passport for the first time, you can choose to add 48 pages at once, for the same fee of US $82.00.

I have a limited-validity, emergency passport. Can I add pages to it?
No, we are unable to add visa pages to emergency or limited validity passports. You will need to apply for a full ten year (five years, for minors under the age of 16) passport.
