There are some situations when a passport may not be required. More details can be found on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's website:
- CHILDREN: A U.S. citizen under age 16 arriving by land or by sea from Canada or Mexico may present proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate, to enter the U.S.
- GROUPS OF CHILDREN: U.S. citizens under age 19 arriving by land or sea from Canada or Mexico who are traveling with an organized group, such as a school, church, or sports group, may present proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate, to enter the U.S. The group should be prepared to present a letter on organizational letterhead with the following information:
- The name of the group and the supervising adult.
- A list of the children on the trip, along with their primary address, phone number, date of birth, and place of birth.
- The name of at least one parent or legal guardian for each child.
- A signed statement from the supervising adult certifying that they have obtained parental or legal guardian consent for each participating child.
- CLOSED LOOP CRUISES: U.S. citizens may present government-issued photo ID along with proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate, to enter the U.S. if:
- You board a cruise ship at a port within the United States; and
- Travel only within the Western Hemisphere; and
- Return to the same U.S. port on the same ship.
You may still be required to present a passport to enter the foreign countries you’re visiting. Contact your cruise line to verify which documents are required for your trip.
