Read about what important documents you may need for travel, including passports, VISAs, NEXUS card and green cards. Although these items are not valuable in terms of expense, they are invaluable in terms of your travel. In cases where you are required to have these important documents for travel, if you loose them then you may not be permitted to travel. We recommend keeping them safe in a handy zipped pocket on your person or in your hand luggage. If your hand luggage gets gate-checked, you will need to ensure you take these important documents out so they are not left unattended where they are more at risk, and either keep them in a pocket on you, or transfer them to a smaller bag or personal item which you are able to take on the plane with you.
