While the State Department has confirmed no passport is currently needed to travel to Puerto Rico, there are indications this may change next year.Oncewe have definitive information, we will post it here.
If you would like to check passport requirements on your own, you may visit these sites for the latest information:
1) Department of Homeland Security Website:
Click on Traveling To and from US Territories
2) US Department of State Website:
Scroll half way down the page to find:
Note: The passport requirement does NOT apply to U.S. citizens traveling to or returning directly from a U.S. territory. If you click on US territory, Puerto Rico is listed.
3) U.S. National Passport Information Center: (877) 4USA-PPT
We encourage you to check out these three sources and talk with your own travel provider to make sure they are not requiring a passport for travel. With that said, it is not a bad idea to have a passport if you are thinking of traveling internationally in the future.
