Visas & Passports
We have partnered with G3 Global Services to provide you with a personalized, top-quality visa and passport service. In addition to visa services and questions, G3 can also assist with expedited passport services such as passport renewal, replacement or adding additional pages to your current passport.
What do I need to know about my passport before traveling?
- Passports: Apply at least several months in advance for a new passport. Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months BEYOND your return date home and have one or two blank pages marked visa side-by-side, depending on your destination(s). Each country has different requirements. Otherwise, some countries or airlines may not let you enter or even board your international flight(s).
- Visas: You may need to get a visa before you travel to any of our destinations. Currently, per government requirements, all travelers' passports must have one or two blank pages marked visa side-by-side depending on your destination(s). Each country has different requirements. Otherwise, some countries or airlines may not let you enter or even board your international flight(s).

I need air reservations. What does my passport have to do with ticketing?
Government regulations instituted in 2011 require that air ticket information matches your passport exactly. You may be denied boarding if this information is incorrect.
If your air tickets are arranged through ATJ you will be required to provide us with your full name (first, middle and last name), gender and birth date, exactly as it appears on your passport. Failure to provide us with the correct information may result in significant penalties and increased fares. In addition, ATJ will administer a $75 per person surcharge for any changes made after airline tickets have been booked.
If booking your own air tickets, please keep the above information in mind as well.
Do I need a visa to travel to Asia and the Pacific?
