Passport rules for land, sea travel delayed

WASHINGTON — A new rule starting in January will require U.S. citizens to show two documents — a government-issued ID and proof of citizenship — to re-enter the country by land or sea from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean.

But residents will not have to show passports until next summer. That’s because the Homeland Security Department on Wednesday delayed by roughly six months a new border-security requirement that citizens traveling by car, boat or cruise ship present a passport. The move follows a three-month reprieve for new rules requiring passports for airline passengers.
