Default Passport/Birth certificate question

Ok i know its been covered a few times but im just checking that im understanding correctly what ive read. Me and three friends are sailing May 2nd-7th on the Fascination out of Jacksonville. My understanding is that they do not need a passport because we are sailing and returning to the same port. A birth certificate and photo id will be sufficient. Is that correct? We are going to Half Moon cay and Nassau.

you are still getting off the ship in a foreign country. In May you will not need a passport but in June you will.

Not quite true... IF it is a CLOSED loop trip.. ie leaves and returns to the same US port AND is going to certain ports in the Bahamas/Caribbean then your birth certificate and drivers lic. will still do after June BUT you really should get a passport... if for some reason you are left behind or you miss the ship/etc. you would need it to fly back.

I wouldn't chance traveling without a passport, you have plenty of time between now and May, just get them and be safe.

LAND AND SEA TRAVEL

The following summarizes information available on the Department of Homeland Security’s website.

CURRENTLY:
All U.S. citizens must show proof of identity and proof of U.S. citizenship when entering the United States from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the countries of the Caribbean by land or sea.

Acceptable documents include: U.S. Passport Book, U.S. Passport Card, or other document approved by the Department of Homeland Security.

U.S. citizens who do not have a single document verifying identity and citizenship must present both an identification and citizenship document; for example, a driver’s license and a copy of a birth certificate or naturalization certificate.


LATER:
On June 1, 2009, the U.S. government will implement the full requirements of the land and sea phase of WHTI. The proposed rules require most U.S. citizens entering the United States at sea or land ports of entry to have a passport, passport card, or other travel document approved by the Department of Homeland Security.


CHILDREN: U.S. citizen children under the age of 16 will be able to present the original or copy of their birth certificate, or other proof of U.S. citizenship such as a naturalization certificate or citizenship card.

Groups of U.S. citizen children ages 16 through 18, when traveling with a school or religious group, social organization, or sports team, will be able to enter under adult supervision with originals or copies of their birth certificates or other proof of citizenship. See the Department of Homeland Security's GetYouHome.gov for more information on the changing travel requirements.

Just keep in mind getting the passport card does not allow for air travel. The cost of applying for the passport book and passport card at the same time is $120.
