Travel FAQ

  • Valid U.S. Passport valid 6 months beyond Jam Cruise 21 dates
  • Passport Card
  • Original copy of a state issued Birth Certificate. If your Birth Certificate has footprints on it, it will not be accepted (these are hospital issued certificates) and government photo I.D.
  • If you are a recent U.S. citizen and have not yet received your U.S. Passport, you will need to bring your original Certificate of Naturalization.
  • Original Green Card (no copies)
  • If you are traveling on a Student Visa, you should not book Jam Cruise at the end of your Visa. If you are at the end of your Visa, you must provide written proof of employment or risk being left on shore!
  • * If you are not a U.S. Citizen, call U.S. Immigrations at 1-800-375-5283 for guidelines on acquiring the proper identification for your nationality.

Please note that the name on your ticket must match the name on your identification. If you are recently married or have undergone a name change, be sure to bring along supporting documentation. Contact the Travel Team to update the name on your reservation.

Failure to possess the required travel documents may prevent you from being able to travel; in such event, no refunds shall be provided to you.

If you have questions regarding your travel documents, you should contact Customs and Border Protection.
