Default Attention, VERY IMPORTANT!!

We have been talking about it for a long time here saying it will soon be necessary to have a passport so please get yours now. At first they just said everyone by 2008 which is true but misleading. It is now EVERYONE who travels by SEA or AIR to the Caribbean, Burmuda, or Panama to have a Passport by Dec. 31 2005 which means essentially everyone except those going on am Alaskian or Hawaiian cruise or one that goes to Mexico on the West Coast. By Dec. 31 2006 you will need one to travel by air or sea to anyplace, period. Then you will have to have one to even travel by land by Dec. 31 2007. Those friends of ours from Canada will be able to get a type of express pass for those that travel back and forth often and for low-risk types and that will be called a NEXUS card and the commercial type people will get a FAST card. Those going to Mexico will be able to get what will be called a SENTRI card.
WHAT IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO IS GET YOUR PASSPORT NOW!
Jim

Yes Rob, anything before Dec. 31, 2005 you should be okay. After that date....you better have one. I am not sure just how it applies to people under 18 yrs of age but have to assume that they also have to have one from a certain age on up. I just haven't heard what that will be othe rules that will apply so it is a matter that teens need to also concern themselves with.

It takes appromxtly 30 days in OKlahoma. So i think it would take the same amount other places.
The fastest way to get you passport is:
1. go to walgreens and get you passport foto
2. go to you local court house and go to the court clerk office and fill out the paper work
55 dollars is all that it takes i think just take 60 if your unsure
3. let them handle it and it should be to you within a month and a half

Any other quetions feel free to email me.
