Does my twelve year old son need a passport to re-enter the US from Canada?
Question: We would like to go on vacation to Canada for memorial weekend. If my son needs a passport, what is the quickest way to obtain a passport?
Answer: It depends. If you plan to travel by land or sea, then your son only needs to present a birth certificate when returning to the United States. However, all U.S. citizens are required to possess a valid passport when traveling by air.
If you plan to travel by air and need to get a passport for your son quickly, the fastest way is to either visit the regional agency that has jurisdiction over your state or authorize a professional passport expediter to submit the application for you.
