If you’re traveling with family and holding onto everyone’s passports or have a lot of paperwork to keep organized (boarding passes, bus tickets, etc.), then consider the Travel Wallet and Family Passport Holder from Zero Grid.

This holder is made of water-resistant fabric and has RFID-blocking material. The Family Passport Holder measures 8.9 x 5.5 x 1 inches, so it is too large to fit in a pocket, but can easily be stored in carry-on luggage. It comes with a lifetime warranty.

Best Waist Wallet: Auopro Hidden Money Belt and Passport Holder

While many waist wallets can be bulky, the Auopro money belt is slim enough to fit comfortably — and unnoticeably — underneath clothing. This black, double-waistband pouch is made with water-repellant ripstop material with RFID-blocking technology to keep your card information secure. The soft and breathable backing won’t rub on your skin, and the two stretchy belts hold the pouch against your body so it won't sag under the weight of its contents. Two zippering pockets with interior mesh pouches hold all your valuables, like a passport, phone, credit cards, and cash. It even has a hole you can thread your headphones through.

The passport holder measures 14.4 x 5.8 inches, making it a great alternative to a heavy purse or daypack. Reviewers appreciated its multifunctionality (it can be used while running or camping as well as traveling) and they felt that their belongings were secure when wearing it.

Adventure travelers will appreciate the rugged design of the neck wallet passport holder by Wink’s Travel, which is a useful accessory when exploring a new area. In addition to going through the airport, the pouch is great for day hikes, concerts, or sightseeing and is made of waterproof nylon (although it is not submersible). To protect from digital pickpockets, two layers of RFID blocking material are embedded in the passport case. There are several pockets to hold a smartphone, passport, chapstick, headphones, cash or credit cards, and the breathable mesh on the back makes for a comfortable fit. At nine inches long, the pouch is a tad larger than some of the competitors.

Best Transparent: Clear Passport Cover, Pack of 5

Your passport is one of the most valuable things you own, so keeping it protected from rain, unexpected spills, and wear and tear are very important. Each Clear Passport Cover can hold one passport, and the transparent vinyl casing makes it easy for TSA agents to inspect it without having to dig it out of a wallet (just have it folded so that it’s stored on the photo page). The interior also has slots for credit cards, boarding passes, or other items you need to have near your passport. ​Be aware that this is just a cover and doesn’t contain RFID blocking – you’ll need an additional passport case for that.​ These covers come in a pack of five.

Best Clutch: FlyMEI Travel Wallet

For those who prefer to have their passport on hand, but also appreciate the security of a strap to hold it in place, the FlyMEI travel wallet offers the perfect compromise. The passport wallet has a wrist strap that makes a handy clutch when traveling through the airport. An exterior side pouch holds all those items you need to have ready to show TSA agents such as ID and boarding passes. The clutch unzips and has slots inside for three passports, plus loads of credit cards, a cash slot, as well as another zipped enclosure for coins and other small items. The cotton fabric gives the passport holder a stylish look that’s great for day-to-day use as well and it comes in grey or pink.

Products We Tested

How We Tested

Our reviewers spent 15 hours testing a top-selling passport holder. They took it on vacation with them to see how convenient (and safe) it was. We asked our reviewers to consider the most important features when using this passport holder, from its durability to its security features. We've outlined the most important points here so that you, too, know what to look for when shopping.

What to Look for in a Passport Holder

Preferred carry method If you’re worried about theft, opt for a product that’s designed for you to wear securely around your neck or your waist (to make it challenging for pickpockets to get to). If you want one that’s more streamlined, there are plenty of wallet-style options.

Material For those searching for a fashion-forward passport carrier, look for one made from leather or heathered fabric. If you value security, be sure to choose a material that feels comfortable against your skin. Other carriers are waterproof, which is ideal if you anticipate lots of rain. In most cases, we endorse RFID-resistant materials, which prevent digital theft of the electronic data embedded in your passport and credit cards.

Extra storage Just want an attractive sleeve for your passport? That’ll narrow your options considerably. But if you want more storage, there’s a wide variety of great options. Here, we’ve chosen models that run the gamut, from simple passport holders for the whole family to ones with a bit of additional space for your cash and credit cards.

One of our reviewers put this passport holder to the test in three different airports. She used it to hold a variety of items — two passports, two boarding passes, a few credit cards, and a printed-out itinerary — and found it held up nicely: “It was very easy to get out my passport and my husband's before we went through the security line,” she reported. “Usually, it's a struggle.” Although our reviewers also liked its streamlined, slim design, one felt it was slightly too long: “For me, it didn't need to be much longer than an actual passport,” she observed.
