Passports & Identification Requirements

Please submit passport and/or identification information for each traveler on our Guest Portal.

Guests need a legal, government-issued photo ID to board an UnCruise Adventures vessel. Passport and visa requirements are dependent on your nationality and your travel destinations.

Most countries require that your passport be valid 6 months beyond your intended return date. It is your responsibility to verify entry requirements with your consulate, embassy, or state department to ensure your passport and other travel documents meet the entry requirements for the country you are traveling to. Failure to do so could result in denial of entry into that country.

  • U.S. citizens or permanent U.S. residents: If you are traveling exclusively inside U.S. borders, a passport or visa is not required. A passport book or passport card is required if your vessel transits through Canadian waters. All international air travel to other UnCruise destinations requires a passport book.
  • Canadian citizens or permanent Canadian residents: Passports are required to enter the U.S.
  • Other Nationalities: Passports are required to enter the U.S.

For travel to/through Canada: Canadian customs requires passenger identification from all foreign boats prior to entering their waterways. Customs officials enforce strict policies regarding inadmissibility due to past criminal charges or convictions, including DUI/DWI. In these cases, additional documentation may be required from you in advance. For information, contact the Canadian Consulate or visit canadainternational.gc.ca.

Minors (children under 18 years of age) travelling into or within Mexico, Ecuador, Panama, Colombia, Costa Rica, Belize, or Guatemala, not accompanied by both parents/legal guardians, may have additional entry requirements. See our Traveling with Minors section for more details.

FAQs

Q. Why is it important that my passport remain valid 6 months after my planned return from my international cruise?
The purpose of these regulations is to guarantee that you will be able to leave the country you are visiting. They also serve to make sure that your passport will be valid for travel to your next port or destination and return to your own country.

Q. What are your security procedures?
Your safety and security are of utmost importance to us. Upon boarding our vessels, we will check your photo ID, and positively match all pieces of luggage with individual travelers. Similar to checking in for a flight, your luggage will be subject to search as well.
