Question from a Reader, Answers in Comments
also i would like to ask something else.. whats the rule for US citizens? need passport? If for us citizens passport is not required, what will be checked? birth certificate? or is government issued state driving license is enough (as if traveling within continental US)?
hello, i am planning a trip to either hawaii, us virgin islands or puerto rico. I am US permanent resident. Do i need to carry my foreign passport with permanent resident card with me? Do they even check passport or is there any official immigration check (where they check passport and green card/ permanent resident card)? I am flying out from new york JFK or newark EWR airport. Can you please let me know if you KNOW FOR SURE and not guess. Thank u very much.
i am more interested in puerto rico please. so more info on that will be helpful. but also pls def let me know about hawaii. and virgin island.
i see a lot of mixed information online for puerto rico. for example look at www.topuertorico.org/tinfo.shtml . it says ” no passport required, just need to carry ID card like drivers license.”.. but somewhere in the web i found out people saying when flying back to US there is passport/ birth certificate check. Does anyone know FOR SURE. please let me know whats your source.
