Visitors from other countries, including Canada, need a valid passport to land in Puerto Rico. For those from countries requiring a visa to enter the U.S., the same visa is necessary to enter Puerto Rico.

It is also important to note when your passport expires. US requires your passport to have at least 6 months left before its expiration to allow you into the destination.
