Default Passport for Canada??

Ok, I know that laws have changed and I will or do need a passport to enter and leave Canada. Have theses laws gone into effect yet? Do I need a passport yet? If not, what are some laws about transporting a boat through Canada? Are there any worries?

Thanks

Jim my understanding is you can still use your drivers license and birth certificate.....but don't hold me to that....I'd check with customs to be on the safe side.

Transporting a boat into Canada should not be a problem at all.....before you leave home make an itemized list of the major items in your trunk and on your boat and present it on the American side before you come into Canada. If you have expensive new items as you cross the boarder you would be well advise to take the receipts along with you if you have them. By doing this you should have zero problems entering back into the States.

So where are you going? Are you going north from your place or east?

There are some good links in this recent post. Including the new passport rules.

You need a passport in & out of Canada. That rule began this year.

I traveled to 13 countries in the EU and the only time my passport was used was arriving in London then I took a direct flight from atlanta to St. Croix which is a US territory and I needed a passport to return to the US.

So far I believe you need a passport only if you are flying. A little more time without a passport for car and boats, but you will need a passport for those soon. We have just returned from the Azores and Lisbon. There were still some people still flying without passports in Europe, but I am pretty sure the US requires them.

I'm suppose to go to Massachusetts to pick up the boat I'm buying (if it ever gets ready). By going through Canada it wil shave off MANY, MANY miles.

Ok, I would figure you are entering into Canada via Port Huron/ Sarnia and then what, entering back into the States at Niagara Falls/ Buffalo? If so, Brantford would be a good place for you to stop for lunch.

Don’t you need two passports for Canada…one for the French side and one for the normal side? ;?

According to mapquest, it takes me right through Brantford.

Yah I figured it would, that's why I suggested lunch or dinner. I'll PM you.

Thanks for the web link - I thought it was for air land and sea

Anyway you apparantly don't need any documents to get into the us from Mexico if you aren't a citizen. So whats the point? Seems like we should be worrying more about people getting in instead of hassing us from going on vacation. I was gonna fly to Branford, but I guess I need the passport.
