Apply for your U.S. Passport today. This coming June 2009, the U.S. government is implementing the second phase of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative requiring all U.S. citizens entering the United States by land or sea to have a passport book or passport card. This means if you are planning to travel by land or sea to Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, or the Caribbean region on or after June 1st you will need a passport book or passport card.
This is an addition to the current requirement that all U.S. citizens traveling outside of the United States by air need to present a valid U.S passport book to enter or re-enter the United States.
