The Caribbean needs you but you need a passport

Most people donít realize it, but the law will change come January 8, 2007, that requires all travelers to the Caribbean to have a valid passport. Gone are the days of traveling with just a driverís license and birth certificate. 

Currently 7 million Americans go to the Caribbean without a passport. There has been relatively little publicity about this change. Can you imagine the potentially disastrous impact of all these Americans trying to get their passports at one time? Once Americans leave the US, they wonít be able to get back.

The time is now to get your passport and beat the end of the year rush. It is easy to get and it gives you freedom to travel wherever and whenever you choose.

To obtain a passport for the first time, you need to go in person to one of 7,000 passport acceptance facilities located throughout the United States with two photographs of yourself, proof of U.S. citizenship, and a valid form of photo identification such as a driverís license. You can also visit http://iafdb.travel.state.gov/ for locations.

Remember that each applicant needs to apply in person for the following reasons: applying for a U.S. passport for the first time, if you have an expired U.S. passport and it is not in your possession, if your previous U.S. passport has expired and was issued more than 15 years ago, if your previous U.S. passport was issued when you were under age 16Find Article, or if your currently valid U.S. passport has been lost or stolen. All passports must be valid for at least 6 months after your date of arrival.

Forms and more information can be found at http://travel.state.gov/passport. For other travel tips visit http://www.specialoccasiontravel.com
