A passport is required to re-enter the United States. Please plan ahead and apply for your passport.
We would also recommend getting a passport card as it will allow you to use the ready lane when crossing the border. Border wait times can be cut in half just by using the ready lanes. Also you will not need to bring your bulky passport book when you travel via land (not authorized for flying).
