It’s easy! When you visit any of the destinations listed in the booklet, be sure to collect two stamps — one next to the destination name in the booklet itself (that’s for you to keep), and one on the prize entry sheet tucked in the back pocket of the booklet (that’s what you’ll turn into the Nebraska Tourism Commission).
To receive your stamp, simply enter the Passport stop and let the staff members know you are a Passport participant. There is no purchase necessary to receive your stamp. After you get your stamp, the Passport stops will invite you to experience all that they have to offer. The Passport stops greatly appreciate your business.

No, you MUST be present to get your Passport stamped. The Passport stops have strict orders not to stamp booklets for people not present.
The app works with your phone’s location services to detect if you are at a Passport stop. If you at a Passport stop, you will simply be able to press “Stamp” to collect your digital stamp.
If you are in a location where you can’t get cell phone service, the app will allow you to collect a “temporary” stamp which will become “permanent” as soon as you get back to a region with cell phone service. No action is needed on your end to make a temporary stamp permanent.
It is acceptable to collect both digital and booklet stamps.
Here’s how you get credit for all your stamps: Digital stamps are automatically recorded under the name you use to set up your app account. Thus, you do not need to “submit” your digital stamps. Once a digital stamp is collected, you are automatically given credit; no further action needed.
When you are done collecting booklet stamps, mail your booklet prize entry sheet to Nebraska Tourism and your booklet stamps will be added to your digital stamp totals.
Important announcements are also posted on this website.
It is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to plan your Passport stop visits during their business hours. That’s the whole point of the Nebraska Passport – to experience all that the Passport stops have to offer! However, if you absolutely can’t make it during business hours, you can use the Nebraska Passport App to get a digital stamp 24 hours a day.
As a last resort, you can submit “selfies” (a picture of yourself) in front of the location. If there are several people in your group, you can take one group selfie and everyone will get credit. Upload your selfies at: http://nebraskapassport.com/2018-passport-selfies.
Please submit all your selfies at one time, when you are all done with your Passport travels. Another option is to print your selfies and submit them with your prize entry sheet. On the prize entry sheet you can indicate for each Passport stop if you collected a digital stamp or selfie. This helps ensure you get credit for all your stamps.
You have from May 1, 2018 to September 30, 2018 to collect stamps. Your booklet prize entry must be postmarked by October 2, 2018.
Why isn’t the Passport season all year long? Because May-September works best for the majority of Passport stops for many reasons.
The Nebraska Passport is designed to showcase “hidden gems” in every region of the state. Past Passport travelers report that they love Passport road trips with their family and friends and enjoy seeing Nebraska’s beautiful scenery.
The Nebraska Tourism Commission encourages you to not only visit the Passport stops, but explore all that Nebraska has to offer. The Passport stops can recommend other things in their regions that you might want to check out. They are happy to recommend local restaurants and lodging options.
Passport stops are chosen through an application process. The Nebraska Passport is designed each year with an emphasis on destination variety and geographical diversity.
