With new travel restrictions, how many have one and why?

I have had one for awhile because I occasionally travel out of country.

it's worth it, you only need to renew every 10 years unlike Canada which is every 5 years...ask me how I know

I would like to get a passport at some point, but I haven't needed one yet.  I might get around to applying for one this year though.

You can call the French what you like, but Paris was awesome.

Yes, but its 8~9 years old. I should just start the process for a new one early.

Yup.  Hard to cross the border these days without it.

Also, passports make a great form of ID if you need to show "government ID" but don't want to give away your address.

Got it because the one I applied for when I was 18 expired.  Proably wont use it again for at least a couple of years with exchange rates being what they are.

Ooh, the coveted black passport.  Never had a chance to use or be issued one of those yet.  If I keep my nose clean, maybe I'll get a real job someday.

   Don't have one, won't get one. I used to go to Canada, But i'll never set foot in that country again after their refusal to help out  in Iraq.

 I have no interest in going to the crime syndicate that is Mexico.

The only way I would ever go to a foreign country is if we were invading it, and I'm too old to be called up now.

  There are many beautiful places in the US that I'll probably never see  (until I retire maybe .) I can't imagine spending money going to go to  a foreign country when there is so much to do in the USA.

I have a blue one. I'm probably going to go study abroad in a Spanish-speaking country eventually, or Japan for international business.

I'm on my second one.  I filled up the first one and a set of extra pages that were put in it, then it expired while I was in Thailand.

Just used in this week when I went to Phuket for a week.  

You kind of have to have one in my line of work...


Trips between HK and the mainland are slowly but surely devouring every page of mine.

Got mine...I think it's good for another few years.  I'll get another one then; it's just something good to have IMHO.

I've been to the Netherlands and Belgium, and studied abroad in Italy, so it's gotten some use.  Went to Canada once but I don't recall a passport being necessary at that time.
