VISAS

A travel visa is required to enter many countries. If you are a US passport holder, please visit the US State Department travel website to see if a visa is required for your upcoming trip. If you hold a passport for any country other than the US visa requirements can be found here.

PASSPORTS

A passport is required for ALL international travel. Even if you are traveling from the US to Canada, the Caribbean, or Mexico. You must have a valid passport to board an international flight and enter another country. In general, your passport must be valid for at least six months after the date you plan to enter a foreign country.
