Tip of the Day: Ensure That Your Passport Has At Least Six Months Left Before It Expires at the Time You Travel Abroad

One little tip than many international travelers forget about is to ensure that their passport has at least six months left before it expires at the time they depart abroad. 

The reason I bring this up is that many foreign governments may very well deport visitors who have only a few months left on their passports, not knowing how long they may be staying in Country A.

Some foreign affairs agencies will permit frequent travelers to be issued a second passport in order to make allowances for obtaining visas that are may take weeks or months to obtain.

Please note that foreign affairs agencies normally require that frequent travelers who travel constantly submit a notarized letter explaining the need for a second passport, including listing those countries whose regulations mandate a lengthy visa application process.
