  • Routine wait times for a passport are anywhere from eight to 11 weeks, according to the State Department.
  • Not all destinations require U.S. tourists to carry a passport.
  • From Caribbean destinations to closed-loop travel, here are the spots Americans can go without a passport.

With travel restrictions easing in many countries and COVID-19 case counts down in the United States, international travel is expected to pick up this summer. 

But for those who don’t have a passport yet, don’t expect to fly off to Rome or Paris anytime soon.

Routine wait times for a passport are eight to 11 weeks, and that doesn’t include mailing times, according to the State Department. Paying a $60 fee can expedite the process, but travelers will still need to wait five to seven weeks for processing.
