Traveling can be stressful if you’re planning an overseas trip. Even if you travel inside the country, it requires many steps. You need birth certificate, ID/DL or non-expired passport, flights, hotel, transportation from the airport to your destination, outfits, a tour guide, places to eat, and COVID-19 testing.
Are the kids coming or staying at home? Then, it’s more planning for who will stay with them while you’re away or, if they are coming, what do you need to be prepared with your child? You’ll need a birth certificate to travel between the United States and Canada by land or sea. However, in the event that the child needs to travel back to the U.S. by air, a passport book is required. Every U.S. citizen, regardless of age, must have a passport to travel abroad. Newborn babies, infants, and toddlers all need a passport to leave and enter another country.
This trip was months of preparation. Kids stayed at home! We needed new passports and the travel health visa to enter the Bahamas. Once we got our passports, we were able to open an account by entering all our personal information, including COVID-19 requirements. I scheduled us in advance for the COVID-19 tests (72 hrs prior to the flight). Also, we got travel insurance in case anything happens. It’s better to be prepared!
