Passport Requirements for Babies. It is important to know that babies, just like children and adults, are required to have a valid passport and the requisite visas when traveling internationally. No person, regardless of age, will be allowed on board an international flight without a passport.
How long does it take to get a baby’s passport?
How long is a passport valid and is it true that it needs to have at least 6 months of validity remaining? If you were age 16 or older when your passport was issued, your passport is valid for 10 years. If you were under 16 when your passport was issued, your passport is valid for 5 years.
Do you need a birth certificate for a child to fly?
Policies can vary by air carrier, but in general, for domestic flights, they do not require identification for minors or adults beyond those specified by the TSA. In other words, children do not need additional ID. In those cases, the airline may demand proof of the child’s age such as a birth certificate or passport.
