Passport, Visa, Vaccination Requirements & Customs
Passports, Visas and Personal Identification
Please check to see if a passport or visa is required before leaving the country. Now when traveling outside of the United States including Mexico and the Caribbean a passport is necessary. Check requirements at www.travel.state.gov/.
A passport is required by many countries upon entry to their country. Also, a document indicating proof of citizenship is always required to re-enter the United States. In some instances (Mexico, Canada, etc.), a valid driver’s license and a birth certificate will suffice as the proof of citizenship; however, as indicated many countries require a passport to gain entry to their country and the United States State Department “recommends” a passport as evidence of citizenship in ALL cases.
Many countries require visas (entry permits granted by the government of the country you will be visiting) to be obtained in advance of your trip.

Vaccinations
Be sure that you and your family are up to date on your routine vaccinations before traveling. These vaccines are necessary for protection from diseases that are still common in many parts of the world even though they rarely occur in the United States. If you are not sure which vaccinations are routine, look at the schedules at www.cdc.gov/travel. A list of travel clinics is also provided by the International Society of Travel Medicine at their website: www.istm.org.

Customs
When you come back, you will need to declare everything you brought back that you did not take with you when you left the United States. If you are traveling by air or sea, you may be asked to fill out a CBP declaration form. This form is almost always provided by the airline or cruise ship.
You will probably find it easier and faster to fill out your declaration form and clear CBP if you do the following:

  • Keep your sales slips
  • Try to pack the things you’ll need to declare separately
  • Read the signs in the arrival area
