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. They should leave it as is and send it to Missionary Travel. The signature on the missionary's visa documents should match the signature on the passport.

When will missionaries get their visa?

Missionaries will get their visa when they are at the Provo Missionary Training Center.

Do missionaries need to send their actual passport? 

Yes, missionaries' actual passport (not a photocopy) needs to be sent to Missionary Travel so the visa can be placed inside of it.

Do missionaries have to make photocopies of every passport page even if there is nothing on it?

Yes. Missionaries should photocopy every page, have it notarized, and then send it to their secretary of state to get an apostille.
