Hey again,

I've been researching lately about the passport requirements and have been reading discussions on here about it. I thought that for the 2007 year, you won't need a passport if you are traveling by ship, but you would need one if you flew to the Caribbean. Does anyone know what the requirements will be? I would appreciate any help. Thanks!

Sammy

CCUGirl06,
Even though you won't need a passport yet for a cruise leaving from the US to the Caribbean, you would need to have a passport to fly back from an island in the event of a medical emergency. The safest bet is to go ahead and get a passport now.

Well to make a long long story short my sister 56 years ago was born in a house and she had to send away to get a birth cert. Well come to find out the put male for the sex instead of female ......now here is her problem we leave for our cruise in May 2007 and the state is 20 weeks behind in the process for repairs so she will not be able to get her passport in time, so my question is will she not be able to go on this cruise and I wonder if she can get her money back that she has paid for the cruise, we are very disappointed we don't want to miss the FOS cruise.

Spritfilled,

No, you do not need a passport in May 2007. However, if her birth certificate has an error on it about her sex you still may have a problem. You need either original or certified copies of birth certificates (from an official or agency, not a notary) and photo IDs in lieu of passports to board the ship and to re-enter the U.S. If her birth certificate says she is male it may not be accepted.

The cruise is still 5 months away. You are still outside the window for when they start keeping money for cancelling. You should be able to get all of her money back.

Sorry, but that question is above my understanding of the visa rules.

Everyone will eventually need a passport, regardless of their age. The thing with people under 16 is that their passport is only good for 5 years instead of 10 years. And when that passport expires they have to make a new application and cannot simply mail it in for a renewal.
