Attention Region 8 Members from the United States! If you plan to attend the 2014 Region 8 Conference in Vancouver, B.C. you will need to start thinking about a passport now. A valid U.S. passport is required to enter Canada and then reenter the U.S.. There are various options for obtaining a passport. You could get your passport booklet or a passport card. The passport card is not valid if you are traveling to Vancouver by air.
The cost of a passport or passport card varies depending on if you choose the card or book, and if you are a first-time applicant or renewing your current passport.
Processing time for your passport varies, but the State Department recommends that if you plan to travel within 10 weeks, you should expedite your order. Remember the conference will take place March 20-22nd 2014!
For more information, visit the State Department’s website.
We will see you in Vancouver!
