KUWAIT: The United States Embassy in Kuwait has sent the following message for US citizens concerning the elimination the addition of supplemental visa pages for passports:
“Effective January 1, 2016, the Department of State will eliminate of the addition of supplemental visa pages for passports. To mitigate the impact of this change, applicants for new passports have started receiving 52-page passports as of October 1, 2014. Please note that requests for extra pages on Form DS-4085 will only be accepted for current passports until Wednesday, December 30, 2015. Starting January 1, 2016, applicants who need more blank pages will need to apply to renew their passports and be issued the standard 52-page book.
As the US holiday travel season approaches, you should consider applying for extra pages while they are still available or applying to renew your passport to ensure you have enough blank pages for visa stamps from other countries. See travel.state.gov for more information on entry, exit, and foreign visa requirements.
