New Travel Document Requirements
As of June 1, 2009, visitors over the age of 16 are required to have a passport, passport card or other approved travel document to re-enter the U.S. from Mexico. For a full list of approved travel documents, please see the U.S. State Department Web site.
Children under the age of 16 may still travel with a birth certificate and second form if ID (text copied from State Department web site):
CHILDREN: U.S. citizen children under the age of 16 will be able to present the original or copy of their birth certificate, or other proof of U.S. citizenship such as a naturalization certificate or citizenship card.
There is an exception to the new requirements for U.S. citizens between the ages of 16-18 traveling with school or church groups:
Groups of U.S. citizen children ages 16 through 18, when traveling with a school or religious group, social organization, or sports team, will be able to enter under adult supervision with originals or copies of their birth certificates or other proof of citizenship.
