Passport law boon to Puerto Rico

Postby KarenS » Thu Jan 18, 2007 10:02 am

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Bride-to-be Megan Ziemba was weighing two Caribbean oases for her winter wedding when the U.S. government stepped in and tipped the balance.

Starting Jan. 23, American air travelers accustomed to visiting the islands, Mexico or Canada with only a driver‚Äės license will need a passport when they return home. The rule kicks in for cruise passengers and drivers in 2008.

So Ziemba, who had been tempted by a mountainside resort in St. Lucia, chose the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan for her wedding instead. Many of her guests plan to spend a week and take in the island‚Äės old Spanish forts, palm-lined beaches, and jungle rain forests.

But while those U.S.-administered islands are expecting a windfall from weddings and impulse travelers, their tourism-dependent neighbors are sweating.
