Do I need a passport when I book?

You do not need a passport in order to sign up for the trip, but it's important that you provide accurate information about your name and date of birth as these details are used to reserve your flights. A few things to keep top of mind:

When signing up, use your complete first, middle, and last names and date of birth exactly as it appears (or will appear) on your passport.

If you have not yet applied for a passport, you should provide your full name and date of birth as they appear on your birth certificate.

Please be sure your passport is valid for at least six months after tour ends.

It is your responsibility to review entry requirements for the countries you will visit on tour, and to obtain any necessary travel documents, including a passport and any applicable visa.

Non-U.S. citizens especially will need to contact the embassy and/or consulate of their destination countries to ensure they meet specific entry requirements.

Remember to check your itinerary carefully for all countries that will be visited (including countries visited in transit).
