Travel Documents

When helping your clients plan their international trip, it is important to let them know about the travel documentation they will need for their flight.

Passports

All passengers originating in the U.S. and Canada must hold a valid passport when traveling out of the country.  It is always a good idea to have your clients check their passports to make sure they are up to date, in advance of their travels, to ensure they have time to obtain, renew or replace their passports. Passports should be valid for more than 6 months from the date of departure.

Passports for Children

All children must hold their own individual valid passport for international travel. This includes newborns to 15 years of age. Passports for children last for 5 years. At age 16, the child will be eligible for a 10-year passport.

Visas

Some countries may also require a Visa. U.S. citizens can visit the U.S. Department of State to view the entry requirements for any country.

 

Other Documentation

Some countries may require other documentation for travel, including:
  • Proof of onward travel (such as itinerary/receipt)
  • Proof of sufficient funds for your stay
  • Hotel reservations/confirmation
