US and Canada – Passport Requirement Update
As of Monday, October 1, U.S. airline passengers once again need to carry a valid passport when traveling to the above destinations in addition to all other international destinations.
Secure documents acceptable for international travel include only the following:
• U.S. resident card
• Refugee / Stateless travel document
• Re-Entry permit
• Military ID with movement orders
• NEXUS card
• U.S. Merchant Mariner Card
• Emergency travel document issued by a Consulate
• Deportation letter (Single Journey Letter)
Any traveler who does not hold a secure document will not be boarded for travel, regardless of their citizenship, age, or destination, even if the customer is traveling on a one-way ticket.
Birth certificates, citizenship certificates/cards, driver’s licenses, naturalization certificates, national ID cards, “matrícula consulares”, and “cedulas” are not secure documents and therefore never valid for travel to or from the United States.
