U.S Second Passport Instructions
Second passports are always issued at the discretion of the US State Department and are valid for no more than four years. Common reasons for having a second passport include; a foreign country will deny entry because a passport contains markings of a specific country, a passport is currently unavailable due to processing delays associated with a specific foreign visa application, or if the applicant has the need to obtain multiple visas on a continuing basis.
