2. You're not sure when you'll have time to renew your passport because you'll be traveling internationally every 1-2 months the rest of the year.
I recently found out that as a US Citizen you can have 2 passports. 2 US passports. Not 1 US and another country's passport.
These are the conditions for getting a 2nd US passport:
- You have two upcoming international trips, with visas required for the second trip, or
- You have Israel stamps in your passport and have travel planned to a country that may deny entry, such as Iran or Syria.
So it seems like I don't qualify since while I have about 6 international trips booked, none of them require a visa and I've never been to Israel.
For me personally, I think I should try to expedite getting one between early July and early September when I have about a 2 month gap between trips. Actually now that I think about it, my September trip to Panama is actually more of a trip to Miami. I land in Panama City then one hour later board the same plane back to Miami so I won't even need to go through immigration in Panama.
However, now that I think about it more, I'll need a passport on the US side to even get on the plane I think. It's late and I'm tired, going to sleep.
