Default birth certificate

Does anyone have any experience with birth certificates vs. passports. I was born in St. Johns, Newfoundland and have a birth certificate from Washington, D.C. Do you think I will have any trouble or should I get a passport?

Hi Srushing,
Not sure if you will encounter any problems, but MHO would be to get that passport. Its really the best identification you can have.

I was instructed to bring an "official" birth certificate - the one with the raised seal. I obtained a wallet sized birth certificate at the city hall in the city where I was born. I reacall that I had to present it twice - once upon boarding the ship and once at the end as we went through customs. Other than those two times, it wasn't required.

Hi Peter,
Don't forget too, if you are traveling by air, they will ask at the ticket counter for "passports" or ID. Then again going through security at the airport, they check passports. We also had to go through immigrations before arriving back in the USA and again had to go down and show passports.......

Three primary rules
1) get a passport
2) get a passport
3 If any doubt reread the above
