meme...you will need them after 12/31/06. the ruling was extended but i would suggest that you really get one soon. there will be a big rush for them. remember that they are good for 10 years.

You must have a passport. I was just there and if you don't - you can't go. New law posted Dec 31 I believe

I disagree - while it's highly recommended that you use a passport, I believe it is still possible to travel with a birth cert.

According to the U.S. State Dept.'s website (see below) the passport requirement for the Caribbean does not take effect until 12/31/06. So you can still travel to Aruba this year with a b/c and photo ID.

December 31, 2006 Requirement applied to all air and sea travel to or from Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda.

My sister-in-law and I just went to Aruba 2/19 to 2/26. I have a passport, she DOES NOT. Her birth certificate with raised seal and her photo driver's license where accepted without any difficulties from her departure from Philadelphia and her departure from Aruba.

My passport expired a real long time ago and I've been travelling without one for years now. Raised seal BC and picture ID is good for now, but only for now! My friend is leaving for Cabo in 1 week and had to spend over 100 dollars to renew his passport (Rush) because it expires in 6 months and apparently you can't travel with a passport if it expires within a 6 month period...but your also not alowed to renew your passport more than 6 months before it expires...so he was doomed! Anyway that's Mexico and I think they went into effect 1/1/06. I would go and get your PP's now because i also heard the prices are going to skyrocket!

Nope, Mexico is the same as the Caribbean so you don't need a passport to MX until 12/31/06.

December 31, 2006 Requirement applied to all air and sea travel to or from Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda.

I have to tell you Amy...I argued with him about that, but he insisted and said he has it in writing (I didn't see it) and when he went to the County Clerk last week they said yes and made him get it RUSH cause he's leaving in 1 week or so.

Oh I don't know!! Going on hearsay again (his). All I know is mine is so expired that it can't be renewed by mail, bummer! I have to go in person and of course they are only opened during my working hours! They have a kiosk in one of the local malls but I never get there either!

I think somebody gave him the wrong information! And to not be able to travel within 6 months of expiration? That's true for some countries (we're going to Brazil in Dec. and that's a requirement there) but it's definitely not a requirement for Mexico....especially when you don't even need passports there until 12/31/06. Think he spent alot of money (expiditing) that he didn't need to. All of this info is on the U.S. State Dept.'s website.....

Is your passport older than 15 years old? Because if it's under the 15 year mark you can still renew without going through the "new" process all over again.

elisabeth, are you saying that his passport doesn't expire for 6 months but they wouldn't accept it? that is impossible if that is what you mean. that is the purpose of an expiration date. you can use it until it expires. otherwise, an expiration date would be totally useless. now, your friend may mean he thought he could travel with it until 6 months after it expired. foolish of him but that certainly makes more sense than the other way.

no matter which, get your passport before next year or you will be staying home, lol.

Some countries do require that - like I said, we're going to Brazil in Dec. and their requirements are: Passport with minimum validity of six months and visa required.

Of course, Mexico does not require it though.

Unfortunately, this IS true. It's the rule of the other country, not ours. I'll see if I can find a link to the site that states it. There was a discussion on TUG recently about this exact thing.

Found it!! From the US State Department:
Quote:
Some countries require that your U.S. passport be valid at least 6 months or longer beyond the dates of your trip. If your passport expires before the required validity, you will have to apply for a new one. Please check with the Embassy or nearest Consulate of the country that you plan to visit for their requirements.
On the other hand, my boys' passports arrived this week. Yay! Anyone going mid-August?

We were all joking about the 6 month rule the other day....what's the sense of having an expiration date if its not good 6 months before...this does not make sense to me!!! But as you can see by what Hokie found...guess its true. My friend said he had it in writing!

P.S. Yes Amy my 2nd renewal was issued in 86 I think...so I only had till 2001 to renew it by mail. Now I have to physically go to have it renewed, Bah Humbug!

Yay Sherry! Hopefully we'll meet at the DC BB party at the end of this month and then again under the warm Aruban sun at the Monday evening BB parties. We'll be there from 8/11 to 8/25 too!

Yes, its looking like the MD/VA/DC BB party will be at the end of the month and I think that the Rockville, MD area is going to be the most central location. We'll choose somewhere that is easy to access via 495.

Now I just need to get everyone to switch their Aruba times to the Spring instead of the Fall...

I've solved that problem by going twice - once in April and once in Sept!

But this will probably be the last year for that since we have other trips in the works....then it'll be back to Sept. trips only for Aruba.

We got our renewal passports this week and it only took 3-1/2 weeks but I can see it backing up as the year progresses.

But this will probably be the last year for that since we have other trips in the works....then it'll be back to Sept. trips only for Aruba.
Oh, thanks, Amy leave me next April with just my daughter and her friend!

You could alway change your trip to Sept!

Who knows though....my girlfriend may try to drag me to Aruba again in the spring for another girl's only trip. And of course I'll go kicking and screaming!

Corrine - you still have us next April! That's when we usually go and we're looking forward to the big Amsterdam BB party on 4/24.

And Kevin, we are also really looking forward to our March BB party - although it will be in dreary DC-Metro instead of sunny Aruba.

As for the Simpsons, it's Nelson who says Ha Ha.

OK, at least I should have one Amy next spring! I have gone 2 years now w/o Jamie my daughter, but she is begging to go back, so I promised her I would next year. I'll probably have to go at Easter though.

Amy (arubaamy) - Do you know yet if we are going to have dinner at Passions the night of the BB Party??

It was something I was thinking about.....let me work on it in the next couple of weeks and I'll let you know what options I can work out for our group and you can tell me what you think.

I swear every time I eat at Passions though it's WITHOUT my husband! Not very romantic for me....LOL!!

Amy B.,

We are scheduled to arrive on 4/26 at 2:45 PM. After customs, picking up the rental and checking in at the Bucuti, we will be at the Sand Bar for happy hour to kick off our third stay at the Bucuti! Hopefully by 4:00 PM.

You're right - it's Jimbo that wears the cap, he also stole Bart's girlfriend/babysitter. I can't believe I had to be corrected on Simpson's trivia

I acquired the nickname (which I'm sure is not original) back in collge around 1977 - well before the Simpsons were stick figures!

Mem- It is not that bad at all, I just must I didn't think it was when Amy usually goes.

Remember food stores will be closed Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Monday. Try to shop around that. If you can't, no big deal, the resorts have mini-marts open for necessities. Most restaurants and activities are still a go. It is cool to see the locals camping on the beach grounds at this time!

Isn't Jimbo Jones the character on the Simpsons that's always laughing at everyone? Ha ha!
And isn't Jim Jones the guy that made everyone drink that stuff to die????

Are you kidding...I love that place. I can see it from where I'm sitting...its just down the street from my job (lawyers office). I wanted to go this weekend but neither one of us were feeling well. I have a gift certificate (mom gets us some every x-mas) and its burning a hole in my pocket.!

Maybe we can go this w/e...I don't eat meat on Friday's during Lent...so it will have to be Sat...of course their busiest night! hour to hour 1/2 wait if you don't get there early! OOps actually going to Europia South on Sat. night with friends. Still extending my birthday celebration...great Sangria...have you been there?

We stumbled upon it last year when we had an appointment with a wedding photographer - just down the street from his home.

Are you going to be in Aruba at the end of the month? - seem to remember something about that.

We'll be in your area on Sunday to finalize details of the wedding with the Caterer.

Funny you shoudl ask...just got hubby to agree (at lunch) and I booked my tickets...now desperatly waiting to hear from the guy with a room...he was holding it for me...then I declined...then I accepted all in a matter of 3-4 hours. So he will either not rent to me cause he thinks I'm a nut or just hasn't gotten my new e-mail yet! But he did repost them for rent on our BB so I know its still available. Dates are 3/25-4/3!!! If you go to Cap't Ed's right when they open on Sunday...you always get a table right away. They open at 4:30!
If you have a lucid moment on your honeymoon...maybe we can get together for a celebration drink!!! My husband is a Bergen County guy. Loves old Blues and Southern Rock and dropped out of medical school to PARTY!!! I could be married to a doctor!!!! And heck us Long Islanders (or at least NYers) always get along (right Corrine?)!!!
