you're welcome.......it will just expedite the US Embassy to process you a new one if you should lose yours.......and believe me they need expediting......if they have to go back to the US and look you up and find the numbers, yada, yada, yada.....you'll be there until your daughters' bar mitzbahs.....this way they have everything in front of them and can quickly process you.........carry one with you as you travel about the city and one in your suitcase and one in your briefcase.........put your passport in the safe if they have one in the room...........I'm so excited for you.......MBear.......

GB.......I talked to my husband on ichat this morning and he highly recommended that you register with the American Embassy in case of emergencies and you can do it online at:

Thanks expatgirl. That is a great idea. I just spoke to the travel agent to set up my trip. Once my flight is approved my our finance director I will register on that site.

When I go overseas, I PDF myself a copy of my passport and email it to my yahoo account. That way, I can always get a copy should something happen to it.

You are going to have an amazing trip GB!!
