The photo ID can be a passport, or their original U.S. birth certificate with the raised seal plus a government-issued photo ID.

    If you will be departing from Puerto Rico to another Caribbean Island, with the exception of the U.S. Virgin Islands, you will be required to present proof of citizenship at the airline providing the transportation prior to departure in Puerto Rico, upon entry onto a cruise ship, at the port of entry, and prior to return.

    check-in requirements for international travel

    Documents required for travel vary according to citizenship, residency, age (for minors), length of stay, purpose of visit, student status, etc. Please check for specific requirements for the country, or countries, you are visiting to make sure you have the correct documents.

    When traveling to the Bahamas, children 16 years of age and younger traveling alone or with someone other than a parent or legal guardian are required to hold a notarized parental letter of consent. This letter should be from the parent authorizing travel and should be accompanied with a copy of the parent's photo identification. In the case of organized group travel, a letter is not necessary; it is assumed that the chaperone has obtained prior permission.

    Unaccompanied minors must check in at the ticket counter. The adult checking them in will need photo ID.

    Customers who do not have U.S. citizenship, but hold legal U.S. residency may travel with proof of residency and a valid passport. Citizens of other countries traveling to the U.S. must do so with a valid passport and visa.

    Any person with a different name such as married women traveling on JetBlue whose identification documents are retained in their maiden name but who are traveling under their married name must carry their marriage certificate or a certified copy as further proof of identity.

    At time of check in, customers must provide proof of return or onward travel, proof of sufficient funds and any documents required for next destination. Failure to provide such documentation will result in denied boarding.

    Exempt from holding return/onward tickets are those visitors arriving to meet up with a cruise ship (who should hold tickets for their cruise) or yacht (who should hold a letter stating they are doing so).

  • Check in & Pick Up Info for Unaccompanied Minors - BOS

    Photo identification is required for both parties who drop off and pick up an unaccompanied minor. Unaccompanied minors will not be accepted without the guardian's photo ID.

    When a gate pass is issued, it is the TSA's decision as to whether a young child, in addition to the unaccompanied minor, may pass through security with the adult.

    drop off information

    When dropping off the unaccompanied minor, the parent/guardian may NOT leave the airport until the following criteria are met:

    • the parent/guardian has a signed copy of the UMNR form
    • the UMNR is onboard the aircraft 
    • the parent/guardian's name, address and cell phone number are all documented on the minor's reservation.

    In the event of a gate return, a JetBlue crewmember will contact the parent/guardian so that he/she can immediately return to the airport to meet their minor. Please note, the parent/guardian must request a gate pass at the airport ticket counter to pick up their minor at the departure gate.

    pick up information

    When picking up an unaccompanied minor, one person may receive a gate pass to proceed into the arrivals area to meet the minor. Please arrive at the airport no later than 30 minutes before the scheduled arrival; however, for early morning arrivals, please check the ticket counter hours.

    In cases where a flight arrives after the ticket counter is closed, the pick up person should proceed directly to baggage claim to meet the minor.

    The child will only be released to the person indicated on the unaccompanied minor form or on the reservation and that person must present their government issued photo ID.
