Land-Border Crossing if Married to an American Homeowner
Posted date : May 15, 2021.
I am a Canadian snowbird. In 2016, I married an American citizen who owns her own home in Florida. Typically, we spend five months at her home in Florida and the remainder of the year at my home in Ontario. With the above in mind, will I be allowed to cross at a land-border crossing with her?
Ed.: The simple answer is “No.” You cannot travel to the U.S. on a Canadian passport at this time unless you fly. There is a slight chance that a friendly border guard might let you in since you are married, and can prove it, but I would not chance it. We are aware of two similar situations in which entry was denied.
