We are set to sail Sept 30th. Just wondering if it is mandatory yet for a pass port? I thought I saw something that said it begins in November or December of this year.

Please let me know. If it not mandatory by the time that I cruise, then I can keep that $$$ in my pocket until later.

I assume your cruise is to the Caribbean. You didn't say. The passport rules are supposed to start at the end of this year. Here is the State Department Notice.

I still think you shouldn't wait. It is never too early to get a passport. Millions of Americans are about to find out that they need one and I sure wouldn't want to be in that line waiting for my passport. Get it before the big rush commences.

If you are cruising next year like January, February, March , April maybe even May. And you wait until 2007 to get your Passport you may not be guranteed to get it ontime. As many Americans will be doing the same thing. And as it recently did, it may even go up in price.

And the last reason would be if you don't get it in time for a 2007 cruise then you will be standing on the dock watching the ship sail without you.

Don't wait, get one now. It makes travel life a little easier. You're going to have the get one sooner or later anyway.

When we applied for our pass port, we were told that it was not required at this time, but having one would make it a lot easier if we needed medical care or other emergencies came up. Whether in port or on the ship, having a passport will make traveling easier with all of the new regulations and security procedures being implemented.
