Check the passport and visa requirements by clicking CIBT visas Website. You may also speak to one of our travel experts over the helpline 1 844 869 5222.

To get a visa, most countries require that your passport be valid for at least 6 months past your scheduled return to the U.S. If you are applying for a multiple entry visa, and the expiry date of your passport is near, you should consider renewing your passport first. Visas go invalid once your passport expires.

Validity stands for the time before a travel document expires. Duration stands for the maximum stay permissible to a traveler as per his or her visa document. A Brazilian multiple entry visa may have a validity of five years, however, the maximum duration of stay at any one time is 90 days.

The processing fees for visa and Passport is inclusive of government/document issuing fees, delivery charges, rush surcharges (if any), our service fees and foreign national surcharges.

-Government/document issuing fees refer to foreign consular fees or U.S. Passport Agency fees Foreign national surcharges are added for all travelers who are non-U.S. citizens. A research fee for providing forms and requirements will be charged for all travelers residing outside the U.S.

Passport fee includes Application Fees and Execution Fees, which are paid separately. Here are the details:

As an adult, the minimum age to apply for a US passport is 16 years. Children below 16 can apply for a passport by attaching any one of the below documents expressing parental relationship:

  • U.S. birth certificate (also evidence of U.S. citizenship)
  • Consular Report of Birth Abroad (also evidence of U.S. citizenship)
  • Foreign birth certificate
  • Adoption decree
  • Divorce/Custody decree

Both parents/guardians must authorize the issuance of the child's passport. The best way to do this is for both parents/guardians to go with the child in person to apply for the passport.

Baggage Allowances and Fees

A hand baggage and items like a camera bag, a briefcase, an overcoat, a wrap or a blanket, an umbrella or a walking stick, are generally allowed for free. Dimension of the hand baggage is limited. However, the carry-on might be restricted with Basic Economy Fare. Contact your airlines to have the updated information.

You need to pay a baggage fee as per the airlines. Baggage fees range from $15 up to $200 or more depending on the size and weight of the bag and is per checked bag. Contact the airline to know about the baggage policy and fees.

Airlines may also accept luggage of non-customary shapes and sizes including sports equipment, musical instruments, animal bag, baggage for children (stroller/pushchair), instruments supporting mobility, etc., on flights on condition that it is able to fit properly in the aircraft hold. Shipment of items can be free or chargeable. Contact your airlines to know more.

For lost or damaged baggage, your airline will provide a reimbursement as per its policy. Certain items (e.g., cash, jewelry, cameras) are excluded from liability for lost or damaged checked baggage. Take note of the limitations and exclusions linked with the baggage policy of the airlines. You need to notify of the lost or damage to the customer care of the airlines and cooperate with them.

Flying during Pregnancy

The best time to fly is in the middle of pregnancy, roughly between the 14th and 28th weeks, which is also when you are feeling best. While booking a return ticket, don’t miss out on calculating what stage of pregnancy you will be at on your return.

If you are traveling after the 37th week of pregnancy, you need a certificate from your doctor or gynecologist confirming you to be fit for traveling by plane. Up to the 37th week of pregnancy you can travel without any special certificates, although it is still a good idea to consult your doctor. You should also inform your airlines at the time of flight reservation.

No. For passenger screening at airports, generally two types of scanners are deployed as discussed below and none of them have any adverse impact on a pregnant woman or her unborn baby.

First, radio-frequency scanner that does not use ionizing radiation, so neither you nor your unborn child would be exposed to any radiation that is hazardous.

Second, "full-body" x-ray scanner that uses very low-energy and low-intensity radiation, so that the unborn child is not exposed to any radiation that could possibly increase the developmental risks of radiation to the embryo.

The energy of the x-ray beam is so low that it does not penetrate the skin and just makes a picture of the outline of your external torso. Your internal organs receive almost no dose.

If you can spread it, smear it, spray it, pump it, pour it….then it will have to follow the 3-1-1 liquids rule. But snack foods, such as fruit slices and granola, are A-Okay!

Unaccompanied Minor

It depends on the airline’s policy. Some airlines like American Airlines allow children between 5 and 7 years to board and fly alone with a nonstop flight. AA permits children in the age group 8-14 years to take any nonstop or direct flight, or any connecting flight through Charlotte, NC (CLT), Washington Reagan, D.C. (DCA), Dallas Forth Worth, TX (DFW), New York, NY (JFK and LGA), Los Angeles, CA (LAX), Miami, FL (MIA), Chicago, IL (ORD), Philadelphia, PA (PHL) and Phoenix, AZ (PHX).

Those in the 15-17 age group don’t have to use the unaccompanied minor service, but it’s still available to them. When traveling alone, children 16 years of age and older can book online, to book children 15 years of age.

Unaccompanied minors are often restricted on a code-shared flight. The rules regarding unaccompanied minor vary from airline to airline. Our agents can guide you over the phone 1 844 869 5222 regarding the same.

Unaccompanied minor charges might be levied at the time of flight reservation. The unaccompanied minor service fee is $150 (plus tax) each way with American Airlines, United Airlines and Delta. Frontier, JetBlue and Spirit charge $100 each way; Alaska has the cheapest unaccompanied-minor fee, charging $25 each way for nonstop or direct flights, and $50 for connecting flights. These fees may change based on an airline’s policy. We advise you to check with your airlines to know the updated information.

Anyone under 18 traveling internationally without both parents may be required to present a Letter of Consent. Also, bring your child at airport with age of proof. For more details, check with the airlines before confirming the flight ticket for your child.

Contact your airline as times may vary depending on the airport and date of travel. In general, please have enough time for parking/shuttle transportation, airline check-in, obtaining a boarding pass and going through the security screening process, which includes screening of your carry-on bag. To know how busy the airport is likely to be on your specific day and time of travel based on historical data by downloading the MyTSA app.

In the event you arrive at the airport without proper ID, because it is lost or at home, you may still be allowed to fly. By providing additional information, TSA has other ways to confirm your identity, like using publicly available databases, so you may board your flight. If your identity cannot be verified, you will not be allowed to enter the screening checkpoint.

Advanced imaging technology is safe and meets national health and safety standards. In fact, the energy emitted by millimeter wave technology is 1000 times less than the international limits and guidelines.

TSA has enforced strong measures to protect passenger privacy while screening. The software that captures your body only detects any metallic and non-metallic threats concealed under clothing and displays a generic outline of a passenger on the monitor attached. The display screen marks an “OK” against the image outline if it doesn’t find any threatening or risky items.
