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.
Would You Like a US Passport Card?

The passport card cannot be used for international air travel.

situations. Note - children's passports cannot be renewed, children must

What is the 6 Month Validly Rule?
As a rule of thumb, US
passports must be valid for a minimum of six months past the date of
entry into a foreign country. This rule exists to protect the traveler
should they encounter medical, legal or other issues resulting in an
unforeseen extended stay in the country.
Some countries are more relaxed on this regulation. Most countries in
Western Europe indicate three to six months of validity are required and
countries such as Hong Kong routinely allow people to enter with one
month of validly remaining. Any counties can and may enforce a six month
policy at the discretion of the immigration officer. Airlines are also
known to be conservative on passport validity so when in doubt, check
with your airline.

application for a
