St. Louis County Auditor Donald Dicklich wants to advise the public that there have been recent changes to the new passport requirements for travel to Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Bermuda and Panama.
Passports will be required for air travel to those destinations effective January 23, 2007. Passports will be required for land and sea travel effective June 1, 2009.
Auditor Dicklich encourages the public to apply for passports early to prepare for the possible six week delivery period and to avoid the rush at the beginning of the winter travel season.
