Many people have purchased passport cards in hopes that it would be a more convenient way to travel abroad without the larger passport book however this card comes with great limitations. The passport card was designed specifically for those northern and southern US border communities that have residents that cross the border by land frequently. Therefore, the passport card can only be used for land or sea port crossings from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean. This card CANNOT be used for travel outside of these regions or by air to any destination, including those within these areas. The passport book is the ONLY document approved for international travel. So what’s our advice? Stick to the passport booklet as this is the only sure way to ensure appropriate documentation to leave, but more importantly, return to the US.
