A person prepared for traveling – let it be personal or official, always keeps on thinking “Have I missed something? Are all the things kept properly?” With the thousands of other thoughts running in mind there are chances that a traveler might miss some important things.

This makes it crucial to remember all the time that the passport once taken out of the file/ folder should be kept inside.
