New passport rules begin
David Mannweiler - Indianapolis Star
A reminder to Americans who plan to fly in 2007: Beginning
Jan. 23, most of you will need a passport to re-enter the
United States.

A new U.S. passport costs $97.

The new rule also applies to air passengers entering or
re-entering the United States from Canada, Mexico and
Bermuda, and countries in Central America, South America
and the Caribbean.

Exempt is travel between the United States and U.S.
territories such as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands
of St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John.

Some time before June 1, 2009 - the specific date has not
been decided - anyone entering the United States by land or
sea also will have to show a passport or a lower-cost PASS
card that is under development.

The sea/land restriction was supposed to apply next month
to returning cruise passengers and those crossing land
borders, but the cruise industry persuaded Congress to push
back the date.

The new passport provisions are part of the Western
Hemisphere Travel Imitative passed by Congress in late
September. Congress passed a law in 2004 mandating the use
of passports as travel documents.

The Travel Industry Association has created to help citizens of the U.S.,
Canada and Mexico obtain passports and understand the new
The Homeland Security Department estimates 27 percent of
Americans have U.S. passports.

It's f'in' great for Belize. Now we are on an even playing field with our huge neighbour to the North. If one must get a passport to travel to Mexico then one may just choose Belize instead.

Increased revenues for us all!

What about someone with dual Us-Canadian citizenship? Is it still required?

Just read link - US citizens returning to US must have them, so that pretty much covers dual.
