Travel Requirements and Guides for Senior Citizens

Jan 20th, 2010 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

Global travelers need to begin to be prepred for body-scanning at major airports in the United States, as well as destination cities around the world.  CNN recently reported that 150 new full-body scanning machines are set to be placed in airports across the United States as federal authorities work to close security loopholes exposed by the attempted Christmas Day bombing of a U.S.-bound airliner.  Forty body scanners are currently in use at 19 U.S. airports. Use of the technology — considered overly invasive by critics — is optional, according to the TSA Web site.

U.S. Passport Services notes that the passport application processing through the local Post Office may take up to six months. VisaHQ.com passport experts submit passport applications via the Internet directly to the U.S. Passport Agency and can process a new passport, add passport pages, replace lost passport or renew old passport in as little as 24 hours. You may also apply for a visa on this site.  The type of visa you will need is based on the purpose of your travel. Be sure to check to see if you need a visa.  This is a cool site and very helpful to overseas travelers.  The top five requested are:

The US Dept of State also has a nice site for additional information for most frequently asked questions about traveling overseas.  Forbes has a complete listing of a wide range of travel experiences.  Some of these include American History Tours, Camping, Caribbean Vacations, City Guides, Cruises, Golf Travel, Last Minute Getaways and Vacation Rentals.

FREE TRAVEL BROCHURES are available online at a couple of different sites. Forty three sites are available online for you to view and then you can choose free travel guides by clicking on the Mail or Download box next to each one you want on this site.  I randomly selected a US city called Hannibal, Missouri.  Here is the info from that site: HANNIBAL, MISSOURI – AMERICA’S HOMETOWN Your adventure awaits in Mark Twain’s Historic Hannibal, Missouri. Visit the Boyhood Home, tour the museums, explore the Caves, cruise on the Riverboat, shop the historic district, watch a classic movie and much more. Great dining abounds and we’ve got 11 Hotels plus 11 B&B’s!  And there is even more helpful information here.  Et alors, BON VOYAGE! jeb
