Despite extensive lobbying by Governors of American Border States, the Canadian Border Services Agency and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it appears that valid passports and/or a “secure and accepted” identification document will be a mandatory requirement for entry into the United States from Canada.

On December 31, 2006 secure and accepted documentation such as a passport will be required to enter the United States by sea or air. This requirement will extend to all land border crossings on December 31, 2007.
