Have you got your passport yet? New passport requirements have been finalized. Set prices are here...
The new passport requirements have been finalized. Since, January 23, 2007 all adult US and Canadian Citizens traveling by airline and leaving/entering the United States to/from Canada, Mexico, Central and South America are required to have a passport. However, what if you cruise or drive outside the United States? As of June 1, 2009, the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) has taken effect. Most US Citizens traveling via land or sea, are required to have a US Passport Booklet, US Passport Card, or other document approved by the DHS. Certain exceptions apply to all children under the age of 16 and adults traveling "closed loop" cruises, which are when you depart and arrive to the same US port. In such cases, you may still continue to use proof of citizenship, such as a copy of birth certificate and (for age 16+) also a government issued photo ID, "until further notice". If a cruise begins and ends at 2 different US ports or at any foreign port, WHTI compliance is required. It is highly recommended that all US and Canadian Citizens use either a passport, valid at least 6 months after travel date, or the new passport card (details at: Passport card info) to exit and return to any US border via land and sea only. A pilot program exists currently to where US citizens can request a passport card online. See here for more details. Don't find yourself unprepared and miss out on a wonder international vacation. Go to the US Dept. of State's website for further passport details at: Passport requirement info or get passport application information at: Passport application. The prices of new and renewal applications are now set. If you have not gotten your passport, NOW is the time to do it.
AS OF JULY 13, 2010
The cost: Age 16 and older: The passport book fee is $110. The execution fee is $25. The total is $135. Passport card is $55.
Renewals: $110 (book) and $30 (card).
