Check Your Passport

Make sure your passport is up to date, signed and filled out properly. Fill out all of the emergency information, bring extra copies of passport photos and make photocopies of your passport information page. If your passport is lost or stolen, this will also make the replacement process easier. (Photo: William Andrew/Getty Images)
