Passport Required

Fall 2006 CSANews Issue 61  |  Posted date : Jun 01, 2007.Back to list

Effective January 23, 2007, all persons (including U.S. citizens and Canadian citizens) travelling by air will require a valid passport to enter and re-enter the United States. This is of particular interest to snowbirds who may have driven to the United States for the winter but will return to Canada for a family reunion or emergency by air.

Please also keep this in mind if a relative will be flying south to assist you with the return of your vehicle at the end of your winter down south.

Passports could be required for land crossings as early as January 1, 2008.

Recognizing that a passport is the single, universally recognized document that proves both an individual’s identity as well as citizenship, the CSA recommends that all travellers carry a valid passport when travelling internationally.
