So after my good friend Charlie told me about our planned DR trip, I realized...PASSPORT!? What a hassle I tell you. First I had to find my old passports because according to U.S. Dept of State's Travel web-site, I could go two route; either renew or get a completely new one.
Here were the guidelines for renewing:
If Your Most Recent U.S. Passport...
- Is available to submit and not damaged
- Was issued when you were age 16 or older
- Was issued within the last 15 years
- Was issued in your current name (or you can legally document your name change)
So I urge you, even if you are not traveling, this is another form of I.D., so act fast! Oh, I almost forgot, be sure to have $100 ready.
