Which passport type should I choose?

You may purchase either a passport book or a card, or both. District Clerk Patti Henry recommends you purchase both. It is good to keep the book in the safe of your cruise ship or hotel when leaving the country.  You carry your card with you for proof of citizenship. That way, if your wallet or purse is stolen you still have your book to get back into the country. If you take a cruise and you have an emergency and have to fly back, you cannot fly without the book.
