When you have added pages, does the office who does it make a note in the passport in the endorsement page? For example, "Visa pages added. US Embassy Paris" or "Visa pages added. US Embassy Banjul". If so, I want to have it done in an interesting and unusual embassy!
There's a couple existing threads here relating to specific consulates and having pages added, so might be worthwhile to bring up the info on some of the older threads.

I had mine done in Sydney about 2 years ago and was in and out in 45 mins. I had tried to do it at the Embassy in Wellington, but they told me I had to deal with the Consulate in Auckland. That didn't work as I wasn't planning to stop in Auckland.

The passport will be stamped by the Consulate with the official stamp (mine has the Sydney stamp), and will also have a typed entry indicating the date the pages were added.
