An "entry" indicates the number of times you are allowed to enter the country with the visa.
Single - The visa will allow a traveler to enter the country one time.
Double - The visa will allow the traveler to enter the country two times.
Triple - The visa will allow the traveler to enter the country three times.
Multiple - The visa will allow the traveler to enter the country, essentially, an unlimited number of times.
Please note: Not all countries offer all options. Some countries may only offer a single entry, some may only offer single or multiple entry, and others may only offer multiple entry visas.
It is important to consider the number of entries for a few reasons. Generally speaking, multiple entry visas are valid for a longer period of time. For instance, a single entry will generally only be valid to be used within a few months whereas a multiple entry visa will generally be valid for a year or longer. If you may travel to the country in the future, obtaining a multiple entry visa now may save you money in the long run.
It is also important to consider the details of your trip. If you travel from the U.S. to India for a week, then travel to Indonesia for a week, and then connect back through India on your way home, this may be considered entering India twice, even if only to catch a flight. If traveling to China, taking a day trip to Hong Kong is considered an "exit" from China and then a "re-entry" upon return.
TripBuilder is ItsEasy.com's multiple passport and visa services consolidator. With most passport and visa web sites, you must view separate pages to review the requirements for obtaining a new passport or review the requirements to obtain a China visa or an Indian visa. With TripBuilder, you may select multiple passport and visa services in one interface. This makes reviewing all of the passport and visa requirements for your trip easy and keeps everything on one page. So you may see requirements for renewing your passport, obtaining a Chinese tourist visa and an Indian business visa in one listing.
The passport card is a credit-card size U.S. passport that, just like a passport book, is proof of U.S. citizenship and identity but can ONLY be used to re-enter the United States at land border crossings and sea ports-of-entry from:
The passport card cannot be used for international air travel.
Please note: Just like passport books, passport cards are valid for 10 years for applicants 16 and older and 5 years for applicants under 16.

Can you get an Expedited Passport on your own without a company like ItsEasy.com ? Post Offices do not do true Expedited Passports. Their "expedited" mail-in service is actually 2-4 weeks - and if there's a problem with your application, you can expect the delays to be considerable to resolve. If you have a trip coming up, this is definitely not the way to go! There are U.S. Government Passport Agencies located around the country. Perhaps you live near one (and perhaps you don't!). You can try to make an appointment at one of these Passport Agencies to get an expedited passport yourself - but without using ItsEasy.com, you face the same problem - has someone reviewed your application to make sure it is correct and ready for submission? As a Registered Agent, ItsEasy.com has direct access to the Passport Agencies to get your expedited passport without appointments and ... we almost forgot ... having to go yourself and wait in line!

We wait in line so you don't have to!
