Reader Travel Tip of the Day: Passport Paperclip

reader-travel-tip2Passport Paperclip
Each Friday, we’re featuring a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Linda O., writing from the Lima airport, who says:

“When traveling internationally, it’s helpful to have a paperclip on the back cover of your passport. You can clip entry/exit forms, custom forms, boarding passes, etc. to your passport and never have to search for them.”

Simple, and clever. Thanks, Linda!

  1. A paper clip is also very useful for any visas you’ll need on your international travel. Clip the page where the visa is. Then you can just mention to the Immigration Officer that the visa is at the paper clip, saving them (usually) a few minutes of flipping through each passport page looking for the relevant visa.
