Where to get your passport:
Passport and pictures
in the US cost US$110 ($97 for passport, $10-15 for pictures). Make sure you do this
3 or more months before you go. Currently, due to high demand, passports in the
US are taking up to 10 weeks to be processed. A passport may be obtained
faster if you pay for expedited service ($60).
The first time I ordered my passport I ended up
having to send it back to be corrected because according to the U.S. government
my name was "Maaryn" instead of Kaaryn. I had to wait two more weeks to get this error
corrected. I don't know how common that type of error is, but leave
yourself plenty of time when applying for a passport.
Do I need a visa?

travel to Europe (especially is you are from a country that is part of the
European Union, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, or the United States.
