Yes you have to have a passport to get into or thru Canada. Also I believe if you even have a misdemeanor that they will deny you.

Yep. Since just after 9/11.
When the US made it law, we changed our law to match.


Just happy to be here.

That's what i thought, but wasn't dure enough to say so. Last i was there, a drivers license was all that was needed, then a visa was good enough if i remember right.

I was in Canada when the terrorists hit on 9-11 and got tore down when they finally allowed us to cross back. I think that was the last, or next to last time i've been up.

No

You don't need a passport to get into Canada. You need a birth certificate and picture I'd.

You suppose to have one to get in us, but they cannot Denie you entry as your drivers license proves your a us citizen, they may give you crap, but all they want to hear is your working on getting it.

I thought that you don't need a passport to get into Canada, but do need one to reenter the US.

You can get a " passport card " in short order. 58.00 I think. Looks like a fancy drivers license. It is good for travel north or south in and out of the US by ground travel only. Works great going in and out of Canada.

I tell you what, sent my passport home with my wife one fall when I was up bear hunting and she came up to visit. Last time I make that mistake! Sat inside for 45 minutes, then took an hour to put my truck back together. Always pack backup ID.

It ticks me off that an Alaskan can't travel down the Alcan Highway--built by the US Army Corps of Engineers during WW II--with our firearms to the Lower 48, simply because Canada has draconian gun laws.

I have a passport card. My wallet is Drivers Lis, Passport card, and CCW. When I get pulled over the cop gets handed all three of them. I think its helped me get out of more than one ticket. At first glance it kinda looks like a military ID I guess. Thats all I can figure.

Yes we have to notfiy in Ohio. I don't mind it.

The passport card gets you in and out of canada and mexico driving. It doesnt work flying.

I've also heard that if you have a Driving While Intoxicated on your record you cannot get into Canada.
Story is around here, some group of fishermen tried to cross the border, two were told NO and had to wait at border for somebody to pick them up.
I don't KNOW this, I've heard this. But it might be worth checking out if it applies.

You do not need a passport. I asked the last time across. The Canadian border agent even confirmed my suspicions when she said the US will say that you need one one for readmittance, however they can not deny you access back in to your own country. So no to both sides. For 20 years I was a merchant mariner travelling from us to Canada and have pretty thoroughly checked this out including rehabilitation. At one point they were pulling crew off the ship and detaining them. They required a crew list before docking and checked every ones background. This was for crew staying aboard and not trying to go through customs.

I find it curious that you would ask a Canadian border agent about the requirements to get into the US.

Also, regarding your next statement - they can not deny you access back in to your own country - how do the border folks know what "your own country" is without a passport or some other official document.

I'm willing to bet there are United States citizens that have been denied reentry into the US.

wissmiss, I did not ask her requirements to get back into US. She made that statement after telling me a passport wasn't required for entry into Canada.
As far as having an official document for reentry into the US, yes of course you do, a passport is not required as the only official government document accepted.
What started the conversation with her was my asking if I could use my merchant mariner credential issued by the US govt, same size and shape as a passport, same magnetic strip, same print, different color. They would not use it as official ID event though your mmd requires background info and is much more difficult to get than a passport.
I have a friend who had to spend several hours in "no mans land" between the borders outside of Haines AK. He was turned around at Canada, they must have called the US side to let them know he was coming, the AK side probably checked his background and there he sat until he got re-admitted. He had some criminal stuff going on.

Also they made a movie about a US citizen being denied entry. Cheech Marin in Born in East LA

I find it curious that you would ask a Canadian border agent about the requirements to get into the US.

Also, regarding your next statement - they can not deny you access back in to your own country - how do the border folks know what "your own country" is without a passport or some other official document.

I'm willing to bet there are United States citizens that have been denied reentry into the US.


Nancy, that is a bet I'd be willing to take as long as the citizen was returning by land.

I Travel from Canada to the USA two or three times a year minimum.
Pull up to the border the first thing they ask for is your passport same thing coming home
Flying to any other country you need a passport
A passport is recognized all over the world
Military ID I believe works for certain country's
Passport costs $160 for ten years here
If you do a lot of traveling it's well worth it
Having a criminal background will get you denied admittance to lots of country's depending on the crime
Not having a passport crossing a border usually puts up a red flag, you may be able to cross with goverment ID but it will be more of a hassle than anything

I went to Clerk of the County Court for an application. Biggest hassle was going to get a 2" x 2" picture taken to fit on the passport. It came in the mail within two weeks if I remember. Not a lot of trouble for going out of country. Better than going thru a hassle when you have someplace to get to.
Kinda like being difficult with a cop when you get pulled over for a taillight being burned out.
I did learn that the personnel at the Cancun airport don't have a sense of humor when going thru customs. None at all.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

I also know a couple that got in hot water when they took boot jacks with alligator skin into Canada. Alligator is illegal in Canada apparently.
Also they got in trouble for not paying sales tax on items when they crossed the border, just in case they did sell them while in Canada.
Also have heard of people having to pay sales tax on tobacco and alcohol at the border.
Welcome to Canada! Enjoy your stay!

Short answer is NO, you don't "need" a passport to cross into or return from Canada if you are a US or Canadian citizen and can otherwise prove it.

I cross back and forth several times a year delivering our setters etc. and use the passport card. I just keep it behind my drivers license. Last year I mistakenly gave them my DL instead of passport card. The guard said "oh, no passport eh'". I apologized, and gave him the passport card. He said it was usually faster with passport but not required.

Since then I have talked to several people who have crossed back and forth without passports, for a variety of reasons. If you read the "required documentation" section of both Canada and US you will see it always says something like "to avoid possible delays while citizenship is confirmed" or "it is recommended you have...", when they discuss passports.

I like to take sunglasses and hat off while approaching the booth, if guard see's you do it all the better. Turn car off and keep hands on the wheel in plane sight.
