Attention all procrastinators: time is up for winging it through the Western Hemisphere without official documentation. You may recall that passport requirements were relaxed in the wake of an avalanche of applications that were filed (and very much delayed) to meet the new requirements. Effective today, you must have passport in hand for your flights to Mexico, Canada, Bermuda and the Caribbean. Limited exceptions (in the way of military travel, for instance) apply. Still don’t have that passport? Expedited service is running at about 3 weeks, they say. Go for it.
