What is a Passport Card?

The Passport Card is a United States Passport issued in card format. Like the traditional Passport Book, it reflects the bearer’s origin, identity and nationality and is subject to existing passport laws and regulations. Unlike the Passport Book, the card is valid only for international travel by land or sea between the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda. It is not globally acceptable and is not valid for travel by air to or from any foreign destination. For further questions, contact us at 845-291-2698 or email us at ccinfo@orangecountygov.com
