What is a “passport”?

A passport is an internationally recognized travel document attesting to the identity and nationality of the bearer. It is issued by a government to its citizens or subjects, and entitles the bearer to protection by his/her own country when traveling abroad. Although, this does not preclude another country from making their own visa requirements.

A passport is not recognized as a valid travel document until it is SIGNED by the bearer.

For persons 16 years of age and older, a US passport is usually valid for ten years from the date of issue. Otherwise, it is valid for five years.

Before you travel, please be sure to make a photocopy of your passport and leave it at home and take a second copy with you in case your passport is lost or stolen.

US passports are being issued for travel to all countries, but special permission is required from the U.S. State Department for travel to Cuba and Northern Korea.
