Very Important US-Canada Border Crossing Information

  • Neither Canada nor the USA will allow any person to cross an international border who does not have the proper documentation to cross that border.  Everyone from every country arriving in Canada or the USA by air, land or sea now needs a passport or equivalent travel document. Equivalent travel documents include:
    • Nexus Card: A partnership between the Canada and U.S. border services that pre-approves entry for travelers by land, sea or air between Canada and U.S. An added benefit is designated and faster lanes at border crossings and airports. Application process involves interview and fingerprinting. Both U.S. and Canadian citizens apply through U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
    • US Passport Card: This U.S. Department of State-issued ID is valid for entry into Canada by land or sea, though not valid for international air travel.
    • Enhanced Driver's License (EDL): EDLs indicate both citizenship and identity and are valid for entry into Canada by land or sea, though not valid for international air travel. 
    • Fast/Express Card: This U.S. Customs and Border Protection program pre-approves commercial truck drivers for travel between the U.S. and Canada.
  • Children ages 18 and under are required to present proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate - passports, of course, are also acceptable.
  • If one parent is traveling with a minor child without the other parent, they must also have a notarized letter from the absent parent stating approval for the one parent to travel across the US-Canada border with the child.
