Places You Can Travel Without a Passport

Have you ever tried to renew your passport but couldn’t do so due to unavoidable circumstances? It is natural to feel as if this has ruined your trip, but this does not have to be the case because there are numerous places you can visit, even if you do not have a passport. This article has all the information you need to know to make your travel plans easier.

United States Territories

The United States controls 14 territories, four of which can be visited without a passport by American citizens and permanent residents. For instance, if you want to go on a Pacific vacation, you can visit Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.

If you want to go on a Caribbean vacation, you can visit the three US Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico, each of which has its attractions.

Mexico and Canada

If you plan to travel to Canada or Mexico by plane, you will need a passport; however, if you plan to visit these places by land, you may not need a ticket. Usually, US adults must present a visa to enter Canada and Mexico; exceptions apply if you have the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative. You can also display your Enhanced Drivers License when traveling.

Cruises in a Circle

Even if you don’t have a passport, you can plan a closed-loop cruise, which means you can board a cruise ship in the United States, travel to the Western Hemisphere, and then return to where you started. To enter the United States, you must present a government-issued ID card or a birth certificate. If the cruise stops in a country that is not a US territory, you must submit your passport before disembarking.
