Officials in the US are currently backlogged with about 18 million passport applications and have changed some of the new passport rules instituted earlier this year.

Until the end of September, travelers will be allowed to fly without a passport if they present a State Department receipt, showing they had applied for a passport, and government-issued identification, such as a driver’s license.

Travelers showing only receipts would receive additional security scrutiny, which could include extra questioning or bag checks.

My question is – how will the country you are flying to let you in with just a passport receipt?? The change only applies to travelers headed to Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean or Bermuda.
