Passport Verification Process

Passports are essential documents that you need to travel into other countries. Your national government will issue them to you on proof of who you are. There are several different pieces of information that are on the passport to identify the holder. These include your name, date of birth, country of birth, and a photo of the holder. This information needs to be verified when traveling outside the country.

If you are traveling via airplane, there is nothing more annoying than standing in line. It is, however, completely necessary, especially if you are traveling on an international flight. Be prepared to stand in line for anywhere from 15 minutes to 3 hours, particularly when going through the passport verification checkpoint.

The process of getting your passport verified is very important, and it is something that you will experience in each country you visit. In order to prepare for your international travels, it is essential that you know what to expect. Bear in mind that the process will be different according to the country you visit, as well as the country from which you fly.

Here is what to expect from the passport verification process:

Step 1: Wait in a long line until you finally make it to the desk.

Step 2: Hand your passport to the officer who is in charge of checking it.

Step 3: The officer will take a close look at your passport, and possibly scan it through the computer. The scan will reveal whether or not your passport has been flagged as one belonging to a terrorist, wanted criminal, or other miscreant that countries are warned to watch out for.

Step 4: If your passport is scanned and nothing appears on the computer screen to identify you as a dangerous person, the officer will usually ask the nature of your visit to the country. Those traveling for business will inform the officer of their intentions, while those on tourist visits will tell the officer how long they will be in the country.

Step 5: The officer will put a stamp on one of the blank pages of the passport, and the passport will be handed back to you.

This is the simple passport verification process, and this is how it will go 9 times out of 10. If you are unlucky, you may be pulled off to the side to answer further questions, but you shouldn’t need to worry about it too much. Almost all of the people that travel go through the passport verification process get through nice and easy! Happy travels!
