OMG, so many different answers - I'm more confused now than I was before.Are you absolutely sure of that? All that I have read says that US Citizens can cruise without a passport on cruises where the WHTI applies. I am not certain that the same concession applies to US permanent residents.
I do know for a fact that U.S. residents can get on a cruise ship without a passport as long as they have a certified birth certificate and a valid state I.D. like a drivers license.
Now assuming that I need to update my expired Philippines passport ASAP, does anyone know how to do that?? I am hearing stories that I have to go to Washington to do that, is that correct??
HELP - thanks.
If you need to get a passport, you need to do it soon.
