  • Passport Question

    Does anyone know if you need a passport yet to drive into Canada from the U.S. (as a U.S. citizen)?

    How about if you're a Canadian citizen and want to drive into the U.S.?

    Thank you.

    Hahaha, Canada doesn't have those restrictions yet I don't think. But if I wanted to ever go across the border (not likely with the crazy lineups lately) I'd have to show my passport.
    Never argue with idiots - they just drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

      Dont be so sure, study up, recent changes have been made.

      * Beginning January 23, 2007, ALL persons, including U.S. citizens, traveling by air between the United States and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda will be required to present a valid passport, Air NEXUS card, or U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Document, or an Alien Registration Card, Form I-551, if applicable.
      * As early as January 1, 2008, ALL persons, including U.S. citizens, traveling between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda by land or sea (including ferries), may be required to present a valid passport or other documents as determined by the Department of Homeland Security. While recent legislative changes permit a later deadline, the Departments of State and Homeland Security are working to meet all requirements as soon as possible. Ample advance notice will be provided to enable the public to obtain passports or passport cards for land/sea entries.

        2008 starts the passport rule, when entering the US, at the ports of entry.

          Yeah, i was trying to look up stuff online, and its confusing.

          So i guess i can get in without one (before Jan.), but a Canadian needs one to drive into the U.S.

          Thanks for the help.

            Where do you get a passport anyway? I've always wanted one despite not having plans to travel internationally.

              You can go online and find the place nearest to you. I'll look for the name of the site.

              Alot of post offices, and county offices carry the forms. You have to apply in person if its the first time. Believe me i know, i'm working on all of it right now LOL...

              You also have to get photos taken.

                Only if you are driving or walking across the border.

                If you are entering the US by plane or vessel, you need a passport now.

                  Go thru the Post Office, and have passport approved photos ready. Your best bet is going thru the main branch. You will also need a certified copy of your birth certificate.

                      You can get one through your post office or nearest courthouse.

                        You can print the application from online, bring your birth certificate, 2 passport photos, and a check. Costs about $65.00. Don't sign it until you are told to. If this is your first passport, you have to apply in person. You will get your birth certificate back with your passport. The back log could be long (longer than 6 weeks because of the demand).

                          Certain Post Offices in major cities can be faster. That may have changed, but it used to be that you could get a fast turn around out of the main Post Office in LA.

                            Don't believe the hype! The passport office is severely overloaded right now and it is routinely taking upwards of 12 weeks. Some people are having to go so far as to call their senator's office to get intervention and help. This is due to the new restrictions mentioned above.

                            Get that passport VERY early and expect to wait a long time.

                              With the expedited service I got my passport in two weeks (got it in the mail last week).
