So just exactly what is it and when can you use it?
It's a wallet size card with the same kind of information that is in your passport...
The cost of a U.S. Passport Card is less than for a U.S. Passport. It's size may make it more convenient for you, but it is only good for travel to and from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda -- ONLY if you are entering or leaving by land or sea.... cruising or driving. The new cards are good for 10 years just like a passport. (They are good for 5 years for children under age 16.... also just like passports.)
The U.S. Passport Card CANNOT be used for flying into these counties or any other countries. Sorry for shouting, but you need to know this.
You can apply for a card even if you already have a passport. You can also apply for both at the same time if it is your first time to get a passport. If you drive across neighboring borders often, it may be more convenient for you.
Remember, you CANNOT use it for international travel by air to any of these destinations. I know I'm shouting again, but I wanted you to be sure to remember that.
We only have our passports now, that takes card of all of our needs, but depending on how you travel, the U.S. Passport Card could be for you.
Happy travels... even if you don't travel the world... just remember that life is a journey... embrace and enjoy it! Judy and Mark
