New passport rules take effect June 1...
Next week, travel regulations will become more stringent as the U.S. Department of State begins requiring passports for more international trips.
Under the rules, anyone returning from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda or the Caribbean is going to need more documentation than before starting June 1st.
Travelers are now going to need to show either a passport or enhanced drivers license or one of those so called “trusted traveler cards.”
The additional requirements are the final part of the Department of Homeland Security’s Western Hemisphere travel initiative, which had been initially delayed for about 2 years.
