    Whenever I publish my articles I got this error

    "Please address the moderator set alert below before you publish this article.
    Needs Improvement
    This article is unpublished because it did not receive high enough ratings to meet HubPages' quality standards or because it contains spammy elements. It will remain unpublished until it is edited, published again, and rated high enough to be Featured."

    Here's the link to my article:

    Kindly see this article and let me know what I can do to get it published.

      Hello catrionajasica!
      I read your article. While all your points do fit well, I'd like you to add some more content in there. In between two blue sub-titles, I see a little paragraph of text. Also, you may have received an email from HubPages, saying that you have to address the moderator set alert. In that email, you'll find what exactly needs to be done in order to get your article published. So, do check your emails to get a clear idea of what needs to be done. Also, add something unique to your article. Like, If I google your article topic, will I find better information there? Will I find something more? or What makes your article special and preferable over others? Maybe your article is more engaging, covers more, or has something that other sites don't.
      I'm myself still a newbie, but I have figured the above things so far when my articles had failed to pass the QAP. I hope that it helps. WIshes!

      Your article seems quite short and also is not well organized.  For example, the info about Passports should all be in one capsule.

      Your subtitles should not be followed by punctuation marks.

      Your wording is awkward and your information does not seem to flow..  It seems more like you just wrote separate sections that are basically unrelated to one another.

      You have a good foundation for an article, but you have to work on your sentence structure. 

      Your title is also too long and is awkwardly worded.

    1: your bio info. HP is by far not a website for bloggers. Your articles should add useful answers to the readers questions.

    2: read how to write a stellar hub You need way more informative text in your hub.

    3: You need to capitalize all your titles and subtitles. A good tool to use is this one: Capitalize My Title

    That's for a start. Succes.
    Edit to add: make sure that the photos you've used are totally free to use and have no copyright attached to them.

    Yes, I agree with TimeTraveller - several reasons but the main one that stood out for me in the few seconds I looked at it for (sorry, in a bit of a hurry) was poor grammar.
