Travelers: Don't wait! Renew your passports now.
Nearly 49 million passports are set to expire within the next three years, and government officials are warning there will be an flood of renewal requests through 2018.
The reason: A U.S. law that went into effect in 2007 requires U.S. citizens to use a passport when traveling to Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda.
As a result, nearly 18 million passports were issued in 2007 alone, and since passports are only good for 10 years, all of these will soon be up for renewal.
Adding to the time crunch is the fact that many European countries won't accept passports within six months of their expiration date.

EFFECTIVE JAN 1, 2016 - ELIMINATION OF VISA PAGE INSERTS FOR U.S. PASSPORTS
The U.S. Department of State will no longer add visa pages into U.S. passports beginning January 1, 2016. Previously, U.S. passport holders had the option to pay for the insertion of additional 24-page visa inserts when valid passports lacked adequate space for entry or exit visa stamps. The decision to discontinue this service was made to enhance the security of the passport and to abide by international passport standards.
Beginning January 1, 2016, applicants in need of additional pages in their valid passports must obtain a new passport.
