i’m pretty sure you used to be able to go to the dominican republic with only your birth certificate, but maybe that’s changed?

Check the Department of State’s website at http://www.travel.state.gov.

Everyone – U.S. Citizens included – is not required to present a passport when re-entering the country after international travel. 

That is, even if some other country will admit you without a passport, you’re going to have to show one at the U.S. border coming home.

Edited to add:  If you’re eligible, I would definitely apply for your passports.  It’s relatively cheap and you’ve got plenty of time.

Definitely get your passport. We went to Puerto Vallarta for 8 days and stayed at an all-inclusive and we only spent about $2000 for the 2 of us and that included our airfare. Way cheap and the hotel was brand new. We are going to the Dominican Republic and staying in Punta Cana for 8 days at the Moon Palace and we got a awesome deal for our honeymoon.

I would for sure get your passport. They are good for 10 years.

We loved the resort in Mexico, they were fantastic!

…just wanted to chime in with the passport thing. I didn’t even pay the fee to have mine rushed and I got it back in a week…had my birth certificate back a few days after that. As long as you are thorough when you fill out the forms, the processing time is not that long.

I’m actually in the same boat with looking to travel for our honeymoon, and unfortunately we’re running into the passport issue as well. It isn’t a money thing (I already have one, but my fiance doesn’t)- but I apprecaite the posts when you girls listed places that we could go- and get away- without needing one! 🙂 Here’s to planning for the trip of a lifetime!!!
