Frequently Asked Questions for U.S. and Canadian Residents

My signature does not match the name printed on my passport. Is that a problem? 

No. If you did not sign your full name on the passport, then any visa document requiring your signature must be signed the same way you signed your passport.

Can I make corrections to my visa forms if the information already filled in is not correct?

You may use white-out tape (not liquid) to make needed changes. Do not scribble or cross things out.

How do missionaries complete the parts of the visa application that there are no instructions for?

Missionaries MUST NOT complete anything on their visa application that they are not specifically instructed to complete.

Do missionaries really need to send that many pictures?

Yes. Missionary Travel needs missionaries to send in six passport-type photos for the processing of their visa.

Does it matter which Priesthood ordination certificate I make a copy of and send to Missionary Travel?

No. You can send in either your Melchizedek or Aaronic Priesthood ordination certificate.
