Passport, visa

You must use a passport to travel to other countries and to reenter your own country. A passport is an internationally recognized travel document that verifies your identity and citizenship. Only the country of which you are citizen has the authority to issue your passport.

Most foreign countries require a valid passport to enter and leave. Some countries may allow you to enter with only a birth certificate, or with a birth certificate and a driver’s license, but all persons traveling by air, must present a valid passport.

What about your children? Some countries have instituted requirements to help prevent child abductions and may require travelers to present proof of relationship to the children and evidence of consent from any non-accompanying parent(s).

When does your passport expire? Some countries require that a traveler’s passport be valid for at least six months beyond the dates of the trip. Contact the embassy of your foreign destination for more information.
