Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is part of the USA and no passport is needed.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

Re: Puerto Rico and Some moa
My point is that traveling to Puerto Rico is not traveling outside of the United States as you assert. Puerto Rico has a different relationship with the US than Samoa does. Puerto Ricans are US citizens and have been since 1917.
That no passport is needed is not a good criteria - I needed no passport to visit Mexico or Canada (1984).
Now this comment is just stupid. You do need one to go to Mexico and Canada now. Immigrants to the US prior to WWI rarely had a passport. But that also has absolutely nothing to do with the discussion either.
Any Puerto Rican, either in Puerto icoR or on the mainland will proudly proclaim to you that when you come to Puerto Rico you are visiting part of the USA.
My father is a Puertorriqueno, and like all Puerto Ricans we are a little sensitive on this subject.
