Agreed entirely ... one would think the words "United States" in United States Virgin Islands would settle the matter.

Add the airline codes, that still consider USVI and PR "international" destinations for the purpose of re-booking. Clowns.

The ticket counter at LAX would not accept my husband's PR driver's license as a valid ID.

I would love to have this happen to me, I love torching ignorant fools like those...

Its one thing if they are ignorant and understand once explained, but when they are ignorant AND arrogant thats when I get on a podium and take them to school. Happened to my wife in the DMV @ VA and we got lots of apologies from the manager due to an employee calling my wife a lier when she presented her Drivers license from PR.

??? Are u a us citizen? Regular school or college??
PR is like anyother state, if u want to come here and study and u r not a us citizen then u would need a visa,
If u are a citizen then u don't need one.

"what about studying there ????"

Is there no end to these questions ? Have people never heard of google ?

You can ask silly questions all day long using google....

Regarding the much discussed need for a US passport if you are a US citizen....

A friend, working for a Kentucky based company, with an office here.... he was sent here to work for a couple of weeks....the folks in the corporate travel department told him he needed a passport in order to travel here...this was just last week !

Regards

Yes, it is a US territory, a part of the US, just a step lower than statehood. There is no Puerto Rican citizenship, just US citizenship.
