TRAVEL DOCUMENTATION REQUIREMENTS

 
Being prepared with the correct documentation is a must when traveling. Arriving at the airport, seaport, train station, or other secure departure point without the proper documentation can mar your trip from the start. Below you will find information on the documentation you need to travel. For additional details on travel documentation including up to date travel warnings and safety recommendations visit the U.S. State Department Travel website by clicking on the link listed below.

If you have any questions regarding what documents are required for your trip please contact our office to speak with one of our knowledgeable travel professionals.

On Tuesday, April 5, 2005, the U.S. State Department announced details of the proposed "Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative."

When the proposed rules are enacted, U.S. citizens will be required to carry a passport for travel to or from certain countries/areas that were previously exempt. The proposed implementation is as follows:

  • December 31, 2005 - Passport required for all air and sea travel to or from the Caribbean, Bermuda, Central and South America.
  • December 31, 2006 - Passport required for all air and sea travel to or from Mexico and Canada.
  • December 31, 2007 - Passport required for all air, sea and land border crossings.

Once the proposed rules are finalized - either in their current form or a modified form - the cruise industry will communicate that information to our travel agent partners and guests. In the meantime, individuals with future travel plans that would be affected by the proposed new rules are strongly encouraged to obtain a passport now.
