What to Bring and Leave Behind


Leave Behind:

  • Make two photocopies of the passport identification page, airline tickets, driver's license and the credit cards you plan to take. Leave one copy of each with family or friends at home, and pack the other copies separately from the originals. 
  • Leave valuable or expensive-looking jewelry, irreplaceable family objects, all unnecessary credit cards, social security cards, library cards, or similar items.
