Planning for your dream vacation can be so exciting — where you’re going to stay, what you’ll see, the shows you’ll take in, all the amazing food you’ll eat.
But what about all your travel documents? Are they all in order?
Here’s a list of everything you need, plus practical tips on how to keep everything organized, safe, and accessible.
- Your passport. This is the big one. Make sure it hasn’t expired and is within six months of being expired. And don’t forget passports for your kid(s)!
- Any visas that can be acquired in advance, including those for countries you’ll only be traveling through. If you can’t get a visa in advance, bring the letter from the consulate stating that your visa will be granted upon your arrival (the UAE and Oman are two countries that don’t issue visas outside their countries, for example).
- A copy of the picture page of your passport, and extra passport photos.
- Your airline miles card
- A copy of your itinerary
