Passport Cards Offer Convenience for Travelers

By Linda Tancs

Marketed as a less expensive and more portable form of passport book, the passport card gives U.S. travelers returning from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean a wallet-sized form of entry at seaports and land borders to meet the requirements of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative.  The card does not, however, replace the need for a passport when traveling by air.  Like a traditional passport, the card is expected to have anti-counterfeiting features.  Each card will also have an embedded radio frequency chip linking non-personal information to a secure government database at border stations.  Applications for the card commenced on February 1, 2008 and delivery is expected in the spring.  You can apply at any passport application facility.  Find the one nearest you at
