Do you need a passport to travel?

Yes and no! A passport for any US citizen is required for all air and automobile travel outside of the US. The exception is closed-loop cruises that sail roundtrip from the same US port. A birth certificate and picture ID can be presented for these cruises. For more detailed information, including the new fees, please visit the State Department’s website at www.travel.state.gov

  1. Does this mean I need some sort of photo ID for my 8 month old? We are taking a cruise this fall and I was told all we need is a birth certificate…do we need a photo ID for him as well???
