Passport for entry to St. Barth's?

I am getting conflicting messages. Is a birth certificate enough to get into St. Maarten and then fly into St. Barth's? St. Barth travelers, please advise.

Depends where your comming from. US & Can need only a birth certificate. A passport always makes things easier

We went through this scare in May 2000 when we went to St. Barts. My husband had only a birth certificate (raised seal issued from county health dept.) Delta told us when we checked in that St. Barts required a passport. All the way to Atlanta, we were freaking out and I was in tears. Anyway, a birth certificate was acceptable a year ago, but we were told then that the rule would be changing to a passport requirement. If you have time, you should get a passport. They say it takes 6 weeks but you can get an express.

I have an expired Passport and raised-seal birth certificate. Will that suffice? Don't have time to get a new passport!!!

If you have your tickets in hand you can get a passport the same day. For details call your local Passport Office and they will tell you how to do it.

Amanda-- I can't say what the rules are now, but if they haven't changed since last year, you should be fine. FYI- I renewed my passport last month, and got my new one in less than 2 weeks. Have your travel agent contact some official govt. source for St. Barts current requirements.
