Frequently Asked Questions for U.S. and Canadian Residents

What should missionaries do if they signed their passport without their middle name?

That is fine. Missionaries should just leave it as is and send it to Missionary Travel. The signature on a missionary's visa documents should match the signature on the passport.

When will missionaries get their visa?

Missionaries will receive their passport, their visa, and their itinerary approximately 3 to 7 days prior to their travel.

If missionaries are going to the Dominican Republic Missionary Training Center, should they send in the flight request card?

No. That card is only for the Provo Missionary Training Center. Missionary Travel will automatically book a flight for missionaries and either mail or email the itinerary to them. Missionaries will receive a final printed itinerary with their passport and visa 3 to 7 days prior to their travel.

Canadian Residents

Do I have to provide an actual bank letter?

Yes, the bank letter needs to be an original letter from the bank. The account must have the missionary’s name on it. It must indicate the last deposit made, the date the account was opened, and the average balance. It can be either a checking account or a savings account.
