TRAVEL INFO FOR YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE
Passport offices across the country are getting backlogged--tell your travelers to renew now.
With travel sales surging that means passports are getting backlogged. If you or your clients are thinking about traveling in the next year internationally--make sure to get the passport renewal process started early to avoid travel delay.
I so wish everyone had settled on a different term, because it’s quite confusing. Vaccine passports aren’t a singular thing, and they don’t have anything to do with the passport that holds your foreign stamps. “Vaccine passport” is the concept of making certain activities more accessible for those who’ve been vaccinated, not a physical thing you have to go out and buy.
Your white CDC vaccine card is sufficient everywhere that currently welcomes vaccinated Americans. And free digital apps are on the way—Travel Pass and CommonPass are two examples—to store your vaccination record, a welcome backup in case you’re like me and constantly spilling drinks on your most important documents.
If you plan to travel internationally, you will need to get tested no more than 3 days before you travel by air into the United States (US) and show your negative result to the airline before you board your flight, or be prepared to show documentation of recovery (proof of a recent positive viral test and a letter from your healthcare provider or a public health official stating that you were cleared to travel).
