Providing our clients with valuable information is key so we have provided some links to help. Passport information can be found below with some links to other travel resources that we feel are important for our clients to know. Please make sure that your passports are current, are in excellent shape with no torn or folded pages, and expires more than six (6) months after your scheduled return from your trip. Also, please check the government sites for any country you are traveling to for visa requirements. It is ultimately your responsibility to make sure your passport and visa requirements are met for your trip.
Deciding to travel to any area of the world is ultimately yours. We cannot give you advice as to how safe any location is. Please do your own research and make your decision. However, we recommend you help protect you and your travel investment with travel insurance. Some insurance links are located below but for more options, please contact us.
Safety Information Link:
The U.S. Department of Transportation reports it has launched a new webpage featuring information and resources provided by other federal agencies. This is a one-stop resource on consumer assistance, vessel safety and cruise line incident reporting statistics. Please check and review it at: www.dot.gov/mission/safety/passenger-cruise-ship-information before you travel.
For passport information go to: http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports.html. Passports are recommended for any cruise, just in case you need to fly back for any reason. Also, the Real ID Act is going into effect in 2016. This requires an enhanced drivers license in order to fly domestically. But, not all states have complied with this law. To check whether your state is meets the requirements or not please go to http://www.dhs.gov/real-id-enforcement-brief.
Each country has their own VISA requirements. Before traveling to a country check their visa requirements. One source of visa information is https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/us-visas.html. Another source would be the embassy of the country you are planning to visit.
