How to get a passport for children in your country

Kids are already required to get an emc passport to travel internationally, but the United States is taking another step towards letting kids travel without a passport.

As CBS News National Park Passport for Children explains, the government is revising its passport rules so that kids who want to travel without their parents’ permission can apply for a new passport at any time.

For example, if your child wants to go to the Caribbean, the application for a passport to go with them will need to be filed with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

The new rules go into effect this summer.
