Last week, we posted a reminder to Americans who don’t have a pass­port that the time to apply for one is now, par­tic­u­larly if you’re plan­ning to travel to Canada after June 1. Americans trav­el­ing to Canada by air already need a pass­port, but effec­tive June 1st, pass­ports will be required for land and sea travel as well.

For more infor­ma­tion about Passport Day, see the State Department’s announce­ment.
