Each passenger in the flight itinerary must have the proper documents for entry/re-entry into a country (e.g., correct visa(s), valid passport). As of June 1, 2009, passports will be required for all U.S. citizens traveling to or from the United States via land, sea, and air--regardless of destination. Additional travel documentation requirements vary, based on the passenger's citizenship and country of residence. To determine the requirements, contact the embassy or consulate of all countries involved in your travel itinerary, including all countries through which you may be passing. You can also contact your international airline(s) for further information on travel documentation requirements, embargos, travel advisories and/or additional requirements that may apply to the country or countries in your itinerary.
You are responsible for ensuring that you have all necessary travel documents. Before you travel, please make sure you have the correct visa(s) and that your passport is up-to-date. For many countries, a passport must be valid for at least six months beyond your intended period of stay. Since all Hotwire bookings are final, we recommend checking your visa and passport status to ensure they are current/valid prior to booking on our site.
