U.S. Passport “Cards”

The U.S. Department of State as of February 1, 2008, will be issuing U.S. Passport Cards that are valid for travel by land and sea crossing between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean ONLY.  They are wallet size cards and are valid for 10 years for adults (16 and over) and 5 years for minors (15 and under).  If traveling by air, you would still require a U.S. Passport Book.  Appropriate fees are listed below for both the Passport Card and Passport Book.  You may apply for either or both depending on your needs.
