"U.S. CITIZENS may enter Vieques and Puerto Rico without a Passport. Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of the United States; therefore, immigration procedures are the same. You will need to show a government issued picture identification and/or birth certificate. "However, it is highly recommended that a U.S. Citizen be prepared to present documentation such as valid or expired U.S. passport, U.S. birth certificate, or Naturalization certificate to avoid delays. Exception—travel from Cuba, valid U.S. passport is required." Source: U.S. Customs and Borders Protection)"
