FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
How important and necessary is it to renew a passport?
The renewal of a passport is done in order that one can continue to travel around the world. The importance that this has is high because if we do not have a passport with a minimum validity, we will not be able to have the option to enter another country.
There are many countries that offer tourist visas, however, they always make it clear that the passports of the applicants must have a minimum of 6 months validity from the moment they arrive in the country. So don't wait for your passport to reach its expiration date and take your precautions early with iVisa.
