Passports required soon for international GA travel
AOPA is reminding us that soon we'll need a passport if our $100 hamburgers are across the border in Canada.
Passports required for international air travel in Western Hemisphere
You have less than two months to obtain a passport if you are planning to fly to Canada, the Caribbean, Bermuda, Mexico, or other points in Central and South America next year.
Starting January 23, you'll need it to enter (or re-enter) the United States under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative — your birth certificate and government-issued photo ID won't work anymore. And you'll need it whether you are flying in your own general aviation aircraft or if you're an airline passenger.
