Identification Requirements

Remember your ID and travel documents.

You've planned and paid for your trip and you're ready to go. Don't let missing travel documents stop your plans short.

Everyone, no matter their age, needs an ID that matches the name on their ticket. You need to make sure you and any child with you have the right ID and travel papers for every country you’re visiting or passing through. Check with the nearest embassy or consulate of each country for what you need.
