INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL

  REQUIREMENTS

It is important to have all your travel documents and identification in order. Before making your flight, you must have the necessary documentation to enter another country for your trip and then be able to return.  

  • All travelers, regardless of age, must have their own travel documents.
  • Always input the information exactly as it appears on your passport to make your reservation.
  • Some countries require proof that travelers are returning to their country of origin, a visiting address and proof of sufficient funds may be required.

Remember!
Before traveling, be sure to check with the consulate or embassy of the countries you are visiting. You are responsible for carrying out the correct documents for your trip. If you do not have the necessary documentation and identification, you will not be able to board the plane and you will be responsible for the resulting costs.

PASSPORTS: All international trips require the presentation of a passport.
Passports must:

  • Be valid at least for a period of 6 months after the date of entry into the other country.
  • Be in good condition, without any damage that does not correspond to normal wear and tear and without significant alterations.

 

  TRAVEL TO THE UNITED STATES

Advanced Passenger Information (API)
To increase border security, passenger information is passed through the Advanced Passenger Information System (API), and sent to Customs and Border Protection of the United States to verify the information of the passengers before the arrival of the flight.
  • The law requires that all international flights arriving or leaving the United States provide API data.
  • The data is also transmitted through the Customs and Immigration agencies of other countries where the law requires it.
  • Sharing this information is mandatory as per the United States Transportation and Transportation Security Act.

 

 ESTA TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION  (ELECTRONIC TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION SYSTEM)

The Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is an automatic system that helps determine if the person is eligible to travel to the United States under the Non-Visa Travel Program (VWP), and if such travel constitutes a security risk.

To enter the United States through the visa exemption program (VWP), each passenger must have an electronic reading passport. If your passport does not have an electronic reading zone, you must obtain a valid visa.

The VWP is administered by DHS and allows eligible citizens or individuals who are citizens of other nations to travel to the United States as tourists or business trips and stay up to 90 days without obtaining a visa. Additional information regarding VWP can be obtained here.
