New Passport Rules

March 10, 2009 at 8:33 pm

Effective June 1, 2009 the application of the final phase of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative will change the passport requirements for citizens coming back to the United States when arriving from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean region, and Bermuda.

Federal rules will require new passport books, passport cards or other documents approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“Applying early will help avoid unwanted delays since the processing time will be greater than before,” said Thomas L. Preston, executive director of the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security. Nationally, more than 16 million U.S. passports were issued in fiscal 2008.
