Spring Break Travelers:
I am frequently contacted by constituents who have made travel plans and suddenly realize they may need passports or updates to their passport information following a marriage or name change. They may need a certified birth certificate from a U.S. Territory or State. Some individuals need to obtain Certificates of Citizenship from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service. I urge all potential international travelers to review their passports now and ensure they are still valid. I encourage every American to have on hand a certified copy of their proof of U.S. Citizenship which can include a Certificate of Citizenship, a Naturalization Document, a Certificate of Birth Abroad or a State Issued Birth Certificate.
As of January 31, 2008, Travelers to the Caribbean, Canada, Mexico and Bermuda by land or sea must now have either a WHTI compliant document or a government issued photo ID, such as a driver's license, PLUS proof of citizenship. No longer can you drive or sail back from these countries with just a Government issued I.D.
