Planning To Travel Abroad?
You must check with the country's embassy or consulate that you plan to visit to find out which documents are required to enter the country. The foreign country’s embassy or consulate can also provide information on what you are allowed to bring into the country. For a list of Foreign Consular Offices in the U.S. visit the U.S. Department of State website. ( U.S. Department of State )
If your travel plans require for you to obtain a U.S. Passport, or a U.S. Visa to visit the U.S. you should visit the U.S. Department of State website. ( U.S. Department of State - Passport and Visa Requirements )
Tips to Safeguard your Passport. You must present your passport to the Customs and Border Protection officer upon arrival in the United States. Carry your passport—do not pack it in your checked luggage. We recommend you make a copy of your passport and put it in a separate place as a safeguard in case it is lost or stolen.Traveling with Children. All children, including infants, must have their own passport or Trusted Traveler Program for U.S. entry. Carry documents for traveling with minor children.If you are escorting a minor child without the parents, have a letter from both parents indicating that you have permission to travel with the minor.
- If the child is accompanied by only one parent, the parent should have a note from the child's other parent. For example, "I acknowledge that my wife/ husband is traveling out of the country with my son/ daughter. He/She/ has my permission to do so."
- If a single parent has sole custody, a copy of the court custody document can replace a letter from the other parent.
