Travel with the correct ID
Every adult passenger (18 or older) must present a valid Federal or State ID at the checkpoint in order to board a flight.
If you’re traveling from the United Stated to the Virgin Islands, you do not need a passport. To board your flight, just present a valid ID. Check valid forms of ID here. If your ID is not on the list, you can use your passport.
If you’re traveling outside United States territory (Canada, the Caribbean, Bermudas, South America or Europe, among others) you must present your passport. If you need additional information, call the State Department (787-723-1453/4344). For additional information, you can click here.
Forgot your passport? No problem, you will not need it. When you travel from the United States to Puerto Rico, if you're an American citizen or a permanent resident, you do not need to bring your passport, you only need to present some form of government-issued photo ID or Permanent Resident card.
If you’re visiting us from another city outside the United States, you need a VISA to enter Puerto Rico. Since Puerto Rico is a United States territory, the requirements are the same as when entering the United States.Click here for additional information.
