Check your passport

We have a trip to Russia planned in a few months and I just found out that to visit Russia a visa is needed and there must be two blank pages in the visa section of one’s passport.

Mine is full. Pages can be added, but the passport has to be returned and it can take a month or more. The good news is that it does not cost anything. The bad news is that the passport could be lost in the mail.

You can also, when renewing your passport, request double visa blank pages at no cost. I would recommend everyone make that request.

If you are planning a trip to Russia, check your passport now.
