What is a passport card?
Particularly if you’re going on a local cruise, a passport card can be an economical alternative to a full passport. The passport card can be used like a passport, but only to visit Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean. If you’re staying local to the U.S., a passport card, which only costs $30, can be a great alternative to a full passport.

The passport card is issued by the Department of State and takes the same amount of time (6-8 weeks) to process as a full passport. (Expedited Services not available)
