In view of the restrictive entry policies of one of the countries that I will be visiting, or prolonged processing delays required to obtain visas for my current travel, it is impossible for me to complete my trip utilizing my current passport.
Consequently, I am requesting the issuance of a second passport to facilitate my travel to the countries provided on my passport application. I understand that one passport will be limited for two years and that I may reapply at the end of that period if my need to travel to the aforementioned countries continues.
