A passport is one thing that you absolutely must have for when you travel, such that if it got lost, stolen, or forgotten, your trip wouldn’t only be ruined, but you would be entirely out of luck. So what can you do to make sure that this nightmare scenario doesn’t happen? Here are some passport safety tips to follow.

Use an RFID Blocking Sleeve

To protect your passport from potentially being scanned and read by somebody with nefarious intentions, you can keep it in an RFID blocking sleeve, which also has the added advantage of adding physical protection from damage or from being easily spotted as a passport by a potential thief.

Keep Copies

If you want to be the safest you can possibly be, print out a copy of your passport, laminate it, and keep it in your wallet. In fact, do this with a few copies kept in multiple places so you don’t have to worry about ever being without one. Beyond that, keep an online copy that you can easily access for emergencies.

Leave a Copy With Someone You Trust

If there is ever (knock on wood) an emergency in which you aren’t capable of or available to find copies of your passport, keeping one with somebody you trust can be a lifesaver.
