People With Passports

How about this for a fun fact?: 45% of Americans have passports, with the largest percentage in New Jersey – 68% of Jersey residents have a passport! So get out there, get yourself a passport and do some traveling (especially if you live in Mississippi…)

Why get a passport?

  1. It serves as an additional form of ID (great for when you fill out paperwork at a new job)
  2. It makes it easier when traveling back to the US from Mexico and Canada – while passports are usually needed to get into a foreign country, they do not entitle you to enter that country. They do, however, entitle you to re-enter your country of origin. (Another fun fact for today)
  3. It will make your last-minute spring break trip to Cancun a LOT easier when you don’t have to expedite (and pay hefty rush fees) for a passport right before you need to catch the plane.
  4. Finances and time off aside, a passport opens up the world of travel to you!
