    Hi, We are going to a 3 night cruise to castaway cay and nassau from FL on Jan 2022. I just realized that my husbands passport is expring on March 2022 but his Green Card Visa is valid until 2025. Will he be able travel?

    Hi Zenia!

    Glad to welcome you to planDisney for the first time! A 3-night cruise to The Bahamas sounds like pure perfection. Especially since you will be visiting Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island. Did you know that they recently added a few new statues in the Castaway Family Beach snorkeling area? Let me tell you, it's quite thrilling to find some new friends on the ocean floor while snorkeling. 

    You gave me all the information I need to answer your question! I definitely wanted to know which itinerary you were sailing, so check that off first. Another checkmark because you mentioned your husband has both a passport and a Green Card Visa. Since you said he has a Green Card Visa, then I believe that he falls in the category of a U.S. Legal Permanent Resident. Guests who are legal permanent residents of the U.S. traveling to The Bahamas from a U.S. port must present a valid original Permanent Resident Card. I would still have him take his passport with him just to be safe, but it does not sound like it is necessary to set sail.
    I found this information on the Passports, Visas and Citizenship Documentation page on Disney Cruise Line’s website. Disney Cruise Line also encourages Guests to consult the U.S. State Department's website for more information. Be mindful that all documents must be valid for the entire length of the voyage.

    Now that you can breathe a sigh of relief that he has the appropriate documents, you can focus on having fun on your sailing with Captain Mickey. Should be a DREAM vacation for you and your family. Come back to planDisney if we can be of further assistance. 

    Happy Sailing!
