Passports
U.S. passports, either in book or card format, are issued only to U.S. citizens or non-citizen nationals.  Each person must obtain his or her own passport book or passport card.  The passport card is a U.S. passport issued in card format.  Like the traditional passport book, it reflects the bearer’s origin, identity, and nationality and is subject to existing passport laws and regulations.  Unlike the passport book, the passport card is valid only for international travel by land or sea between the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda.  It is not valid for travel by air to or from any foreigh destination.
