You will require a passport for any trips that take outside of Canada. In today’s era of heightened security, passengers on domestic flights are being asked for proof of identity. For travel to the United States, it appears that all passengers will shortly be required to carry a valid passport. A passport is your best form of identification and proof of citizenship. In addition some countries will require that visitors obtain a VISA (this is their permission for you to enter their country and is usually a stamp in or paper attached to your passport). Our travel consultants will advise you of any visa requirements and in most cases we will provide application forms and/or assist members in obtaining any required visas. If you do not have a valid Canadian Passport, please advise our consultants at the time of booking.
