Letter of Explanation

Please provide a letter explaining why you need a second valid passport. The reasons that the US Department of State would issue a second valid passport are one of two. The first reason would be due to a busy traveling schedule and you need the second valid passport to leave it while you apply for a visa to enter a foreign country. The second reason could be that you are traveling into two countries that do not have a good relationship with each other and one country will not let you in with your passport being stamped by the other country. You also need to provide your full flight itinerary, if you’re a pilot you will need a letter from your company and a copy of your airline ID.

You will also need to complete a letter issued by the U.S. Department of State for a second valid U.S. passport. PLease click the link below.
