Hey guys. Here is the situation...hopefully I explain it well enough. My biological father, biological aunt, my adopted sister and I are going on a RC cruise in 16 days. My sister is adopted, and her legal parents are my biological mom and my step-father. They are both not coming on the cruise. My sister will be 13 by the time of our trip, but with her being a minor, our travel agent strongly suggested getting notarized letters of consent from both our mother and her father. That's all fine and well. My concern is her pass port. My step-father has been getting the run around with the issuance of a pass port. They filled out the paperwork and gave her birth certificate in early November. They also ordered it to be expedited, just in case. Then, the week of Thanksgiving, my step-father got a letter in the mail asking for additional documentation, because she was not born in the US. She is a citizen, but I guess the government needs additional paperwork to issue her a passport with her being adopted from a different country. Now i know I have gone on cruises before with out a pass port, but I brought my enhanced license and birth certificate. Had I not had my birth certificate, we were told I would have been screwed. Hence, the convenience of a pass port. My concern is that her pass port won't get to us in time for this cruise. He hasn't gotten any word in regards to whether or not the documentation he sent was enough. We leave in 16 days, and I'm worried. In the event it doesn't reach us in time, what do we do? Bring her birth certificate? She doesn't have a state-issued ID. Anyone been through this, or at least a similar situation before? Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
