PROPER ENTRY/RE-ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: Requirements as outlined below may change, so see your travel agent or contact the consulate for the country to which you are traveling to be accurately advised of current requirements.

If your name on your passport (or for non-U.S. citizens, valid travel documents) does not match your name on your travel vouchers/tickets, you will not be allowed to travel.
