International Identification

Will I need to bring my passport with me everywhere or do casinos/nightclubs/bars accept international ID cards/driving licenses as identification and/or proof of age?

Your international driver's license may be accepted as proof of age in many places, but there's no guarantee it will be accepted everywhere. It's up to the establishment and maybe even the individual checking ID. The only international ID that's sure to be accepted is a passport -- the real thing, not a copy.

A passport will be accepted everywhere - any other form of official government issued photo id may be accepted, it comes down to the person you encounter who needs to see the id.

I would guess that 98% of the time your government issued photo ID would be perfectly acceptable. If it is not, go next door it will be accepted there.

A passport will always be accepted. As will 99% of international driver licenses & age of majority cards as long as they are government issued AND in their "Accepted forms of ID" books. Typically they have two volumes. It may take few minutes to find it but once its verified its in the book, you are good to go. If, I were you, I would put a photocopy of my passport in the room safe, as well as mu drivers license (unleas you are driving!) and just carry the passport in a protective sleeve/sak. As it is less hassle
