Entering Canada - CBSA

I believe when it comes to crossing borders one should go to the source that establishes and controls the entry requirements. In this case it is CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency). Their website and the correct entry requirements can be found at the following link: Non-Canadians

Hope that helps.

I just looked at that link and guess what? It's dated Nov 09, so it's out of date and it's wrong. sorry.

Are you kidding?

Please explain what is wrong with it? It is the one and only official site that you can follow, Im not sure what is wrong with it?
May I ask where you got your information from? Thanks for now.

I use a Passport card to go to Canada by car. The trouble with a Nexus card is that everyone in the car has to have one or you can't use the Nexus lane and it is only good for car travel (the Passport card also works for ferries and a few airports like Seattle to Vancouver.) And the rabies comment is right on- forget to bring it and they'll ask, otherwise, they never do!

Roland, I looked at the site right after reading your post. I went to it and I went to the part about paperwork or something there (it's in Blue letters)and the part about non Canadians entering Canada, and it says what you said but the laws have changed and when you go to the bottom of the page it's dated 11/something/09.

Thanks Greg but I looked at the bottom of the page and it states it was modified 27th July, 2010, seven months ago. Sorry, still not sure what you are referring to, but just to close off my posting on this thread and to make sure we don't leave anyone confused...

This is the only website for the Federal Government Border Services Agency and all Border information is released in this website and updated daily. Any changes to Customs or Immigration legislation will be changed in the website as people from all over the world refer to it.
Over and out.

I think perhaps Greg may have clicked the Publications and Forms link which shows a date last modified as 2009-02-24 at the bottom of the page. I wouldn't assume the site is wrong because one of their pages shows an old date. it's more likely the date on that page wasn't updated.

I have heard the same. I also heard there is a solution, one can make a substantial payment, I heard $1,000. The catch is that the payment is for each crossing and it is not refundable. It allows only a brief visit. The dollar amount will vary because most sources reccomend hiring an imigration attorney.

Canada does not like DUI's. Just a note, these rules do not only apply to drivers, they effect anyone entering Canada.

Last year when we crossed at Niagra Falls, we had our passports but it took awhile bease we were towing a camper. Patrolman laughing that I had a "disrupting the peace" citation in 1970. Had no idea they tracked so hard.

The passport card is half the price of a passport book.

Canada USA Travel

There seems to have been some needless discussion about travel between the US and Canada.

Please check this site:

The Embassy of the United States of America - Canada
Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative

The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) requires all citizens of the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Bermuda to have a passport or other accepted document that establishes the bearerís identity and nationality to enter or depart the United States from within the Western Hemisphere. ...

Land and Sea Documents

WHTI requires travelers to present a passport or other approved secure document denoting citizenship and identity for all land and sea travel into the United States. WHTI establishes document requirements for travelers entering the United States who were previously exempt, including citizens of the U.S., Canada and Bermuda. These document requirements are effective June 1, 2009.

Most travelers will require one of the following documents:

* U.S. citizens: A passport issued by the U.S. Government, a passport card, a valid trusted traveler program card (FAST, NEXUS, or SENTRI), an enhanced driverís license (EDL), a Military ID with official travel orders, or a U.S. Merchant Mariner Document.
* Canadian citizens: A passport issued by the Government of Canada, a valid trusted traveler program card (FAST, NEXUS, or SENTRI), or an EDL.
U.S. and Canadian children under the age of 16 will be able to present a birth certificate or other proof of citizenship. See the CBP website for more information about children traveling with a school or religious group, social organization, or sports team.
You can see that the current regulations came into effect June 1, 2009.

Requirements for entering Canada are found here:

Safety and Security - Admissibility
Canadians Returning Home

Make sure you carry proper identification for yourself and any children travelling with you to assist in confirming your legal right to enter Canada.

The Government of Canada recommends that Canadian citizens travel with a valid Canadian passport because it is the only reliable and universally accepted travel and identification document available to Canadians for the purpose of international travel.


Non-Canadians

If you are a citizen of the United States, you do not need a passport to enter Canada. However, you should carry proof of your citizenship, such as a birth certificate, certificate of citizenship or naturalization, as well as photo identification. If you are a permanent resident of Canada or the U.S, you should bring your Permanent Resident Card with you.
A US citizen traveling to Canada needs to consider both what is needed to enter Canada and what is needed to return to the US.

So it looks like our standard Florida Driver's License would not cut it. We'll have to get something else. Not necessarily a passport but some other form of accepted identification and proof of citizenship.

Thanks e'body! I just wasnt looking in the right place for the info. I kept finding contradictions.
