International Travel: Frequently Asked Questions

Apply for Your Passport

Make sure that you apply for a passport before traveling abroad to any vacation destination. It will take several months to obtain one, so submit your application early. For more information, visit the United States Postal Service's passport page.

When is the best time to find a bargain airfare?

Flights to the Bahamas are affordable. Bargain shoppers should look online around 3pm Tuesday (EST) for the best fares. Most airlines release their weekly sales fares earlier in the day. By mid-afternoon, companies have matched their competitor's prices.

What should you pack for overseas travel?

Many first-time international travelers are not sure how to pack for their trip. Here is a checklist of items you'll need for your journey. Assemble your suitcase with the following items:

  • Take health-related items. Pack reading glasses and prescription medicines.
  • Bring electronic devices like e-readers and chargers.
  • Carry casual clothing for different climates.  Include apparel for warm and cold weather. Select pieces for layer-based outfits that you can remove, replace, or change.
  • Pack your lighter, warm-weather clothes first in your suitcase. You'll layer pieces on top of these garments. Include swimsuits, shorts, and light t-shirts. Add fleece wear, light jackets, and cashmere sweaters for cooler nights. Tights and leggings are also great layering pieces.
  • Bring a rain jacket. You'll need to wear one during inclement weather.
  • Leave all heavy apparel at home. Jeans, sweatshirts, and sneakers take up too much suitcase space.
  • Don't pack any large bottles. Leave shampoo and conditioner at home.
