If you are considering traveling any time soon, look into getting a passport card instead of the standard passport book. Not only are they a fraction of the cost of a passport book, but they are small and convenient, something that fits right into your wallet. A passport card carries many of the same benefits as a passport book, it just resembles a credit card and has certain restrictions. There is no available way to get a same day passport, but you can choose to get same day service on a regular passport book with US Passport Now. If you decide on just the card, we guarantee that you will receive it in 2-3 weeks, or your money back.
Being able to use a passport card comes with a couple limitations. The first is that you can only travel to Mexico, Canada, Bermuda, or the Caribbean. Secondly, you can only travel by car or boat. All airplane travel requires a passport, so please visit our new passport page for more information.
A few documents are required to get your passport card:
- A passport card application
- Proof of US citizenship, or your current, valid passport
- Proof of identification, or your current, valid passport
- Passport photos
- Intent of travel
You can get a passport card with your passport book if you like. This option means getting both a passport book and passport card with just one application.
If you are citizen 16 or older, your passport will cost $55. It will only cost $30 if you have previously owned a passport card. An adult passport card is valid for ten years. Those under 16 can get a passport card for $40, and these are valid for five years.
