The Embassy of the United States of America in Belize and the U.S. Department of State would like to announce the following important change to your passport:

After December 31, 2015, no more extra visa pages will be added to U.S. passports. Instead, the 52-page passport books will be issued at no extra cost to U.S. citizens applying from outside the United States.

The determination to eliminate the visa page insert service was made to enhance the security of the passport and to abide by international passport standards.

Renew your passport early to make sure you have enough blank pages for visa stamps and see for more information. Also, if you have not already enrolled in our Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), please consider doing so at
