HARTFORD - If you're thinking about international travel, the first thing to do is make sure your passport is up to date.

David Riddell, Customer Service Manager for the Connecticut Passport Agency, joined FOX 61's Good Day Connecticut with tips on making sure you get your passport on time.

The agency encourages passport applicants to apply for or renew U.S. passports well ahead of planned travel, as they anticipate longer than average wait times for passport processing over the coming months.

They expect increased passport applications to continue through 2018. The State Department has committed additional resources and personnel to meeting the expected record-breaking demand for passports, and undertaking every effort to adjudicate passports as efficiently as possible in advance of planned travel.

There will be passport acceptance at this year’s Ski, Sun, and Travel Expo. Click here for complete coverage of the event.
