Honestly, most of us wish there are no boundaries in this world so we can just go to other places for all other purposes except to seek greener pastures.
But sadly there are several legitimate reasons why this can’t happen. That’s why we all need a passport and visa to travel from our countries to other places around the world. Well, on the flip side there are a few destinations where you can go without having a passport.
The best part is that none of them requires you to spend time or money renewing your passport or standing in a customs line.
That’s right—you can visit the tropical getaway of your dreams, no passport required! Why don’t you put these five destinations on your itinerary on your next visit? But remember, there are ‘terms and conditions’ attached to this no passport zones.
1. Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is the only two destinations in the Caribbean that don’t require U.S. citizens to carry a passport. Obviously totally insane if you don’t this vibrant country on your list on your next trip. We don’t want to remind them they have good weather, nice cuisine, friendly locals and beautiful women. The beaches are pristine and the temperature is always just right at a balmy 80-ish degrees year-round.
2. San Diego, California
The next time you want to travel, kindly head to the west and you’ll find a SoCal paradise in San Diego, and thank us later. It’s a Pacific Coast dream featuring scuba diving, white sand beaches, underwater reefs and plenty of seal spotting as the Children’s Pool transforms into a safe haven for newly-born seal pups from December to May each year.
Hawaii is still a relatively easy and attractive destination for U.S. travelers since it’s the only true set of tropical islands to revel in full U.S. statehood. And of course, once you arrive here, get to experience the natural beauty, ample exploration opportunities, and unique cultural experiences you thought you’d have to travel across the world to experience.
4. American Samoa
Just like the locations we have listed above, you don’t need Samoa to travel to this place. American Samoa is a U.S. territory covering seven South Pacific islands. You’ll find them about 1,600 miles from New Zealand and 2,200 miles from Hawaii. If you are looking for the perfect escape from all the chaos of your immediate environment, this is the place to be.
