Need a Passport?
You may go to your local court or passport office to get a passport. Most countries now have an official government website at which you can apply or download an application. Apply well in advance since some offices may take a few weeks to a month to process the application, most do offer expedited services for an additional fee.
Keep a copy of your passport and visas separate from your original and also have one at home during your travels just in case you lose them. Also make a copy of your driver’s license. If you lose your passport, notify the police immediately.
