Make sure you have your Passport
Beginning January 23, 2007, all U.S. Citizens who travel by air to or from Mexico will be required to present a valid U.S. Passport in order to leave and re-enter the country. United States citizens can visit the State Department’s travel website http://www.travel.state.gov, or call the U.S. National Passport Information Center: 1-877-4USA-PPT. As a reminder, you should already have your passport in hand or at the very least, it should be on the way.
Make sure your passport information has been updated on the Passport Information tab in your JusCollege.com account.
Make sure your information is correct and up to date!
Some countries require that your passport be valid for at least six months beyond the dates of your trip. Some airlines will not allow you to board if this requirement is not met. Consider the following scenario: A country requires that you have at least six months of validity on your passport. You currently have seven months of validity on your passport. However, your trip is two months from now. At that point, you will only have five months of validity remaining on your passport which is not enough to satisfy that country’s entry requirements. In this situation, you would need to renew your passport before you can make your trip. See here for more information: http://www.travel.state.gov
As you start your descent into Cabo San Lucas, your flight attendant will pass out an immigration form that you must fill out in its entirety. After you land, you will proceed to the customs area. You will present your passport along with the immigration form to the customs agent who could then ask you a series of questions before approving and stamping your passport and the immigration form. The customs agent will return your passport along with the immigration form receipt. We recommend storing this small receipt inside your passport (or a safe place) for safekeeping as this document is required at the airport in order for you to return home.
DO NOT LOSE THIS RECEIPT YOU NEED THIS TO RETURN TO THE UNITED STATES.
