Documents required for international travel

Travel documents

When you are traveling across international borders, customs and immigration will require that you provide proof of citizenship. This proof can vary, as each country has its own requirements for entry. In order to get through the check-in and security process quickly and easily, please make sure that the name on your travel documents matches the name on your ticket.
