Just another clarification for my last post, it applies only if you are traveling into or out of that country (Canada,Mexico, Caribbean) by air only. If you are traveling in or out by sea, a passport is not yet required at all, just the proper ID required.

I hate to put a damper on the chat going on here, but the way I read it is that for Canada , Mexico and the Caribbean, if you are arriving or departing those countries by air, you need the proper ID AND proof that you have applied for a passport. So it is my understanding that just a Birth Certificate isn't enough, you must have the proof that your passport application is in process. This is until September 30. Then after September 30, you need the passport. To get proof of processing the passport application, you need to apply then check online for the status of the application. Go to the website to make sure. www.travel.state.gov.
You read it correctly. And, don't worry about putting a damper on this discussion -- I mentioned the same thing above. But thanks for adding how to obtain proof of application. I had mentioned that on another post, but not here.
Happy cruising!

The rules have been changed again! Previously, passports were going to be required for cruises starting this coming January. Now that will requirement will be "eased" into and not enforced until about 6 months later. Read about it here.

Wow so from the way it looks you wont need a passport until summer 2008, well maybe now my niece will take her daughter on a cruise she didn't want to have to pay all that money for a passport for a 7 year old child.
