How do new Border Crossing requirements affect passengers going on cruises ?


U.S. and Canadian citizens arriving on cruises from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, or the Caribbean are able to enter or depart the country with proof of identity and citizenship, such as a birth certificate and government-issued photo ID, as provided at Customs and Border Patrol, sea travel page.

Please be aware that you may still be required to present a passport when you dock at a foreign port, depending on the islands or countries that your cruise ship is visiting. Check with your cruiseline to ensure you have the appropriate documents for the stops you’ll be making on your cruise.
