  • Yes, you'll need a passport book. The only time you don't need a passport would be for traveling in the US. You could get a passport card if you were going to Canada or South America (by car only), but since you said Africa, you need a book.

    Be aware though, that if you don't have sole physical and legal custody of your son, the father will need to sign a consent for the passport (either the actual application, or if he is states away, he would need to sign the consent form and have it notarized).

  • Yes, and check out the laws for that country depending on length of stay you and your son may need visas as well.

  • I would think you would need a Visa of some sort to take up residence there... We are talking longer than a short visit right?

  • Yes, you need a passport and you also have to go to your Dr. & get the proper vaccinations for travel to Africa. If you have only known this man for a short time & wan't to go, I would first go for a visit WITHOUT my child for a week or two, just to make sure everything is as yu imagined & is good & safe. GL & be careful.

  • You do need a passport and you may need vaccines for you and your child as well. I would notify your doctor of where you will be visiting and have you and your son seen before you go.
