U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has submitted a reminder for tourists and travelers of important tips for international travel this holiday season. With increasing travel and tourism over the past year, CBP suggests that returning U.S. citizens or residents and international visitors can do certain things to speed their processing through U.S. borders.

Remember that the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative requires U.S. and Canadian citizens age 16 and older to present a valid and acceptable travel document (e.g., passport, U.S. passport card, trusted traveler card, permanent resident card, or an enhanced driver’s license).
If you are a national or citizen of a participating Visa Waiver Program country, ensure you have an approved Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) before boarding an air or sea vessel traveling to the U.S.
