Ok I guess I need a passport?How about to get back into the States.Do I need anything? Looks like a passport is easier than a NEXUS card, right?

I hope all this bullsh*t is keeping out terrorists and Jehovahs, Born-Agains, Crossfitters and Russians

Passport is reasonably easy. Not real fast. Nexus never tried.
You may also be able to get an "enhanced" driver license. In Michigan we can at least.

Make sure no one you travel with has a DUI cause they are not getting into Canada.

Just went a couple of months ago for business. Just be honest in answering the questions you may or may not get, know where you are staying and for how long (duh).

I flew and have Global Entry so coming back in was cake. Passport for sure. Have fun, and I hope you get to meet her ^.

You need a passport. Global Entry/Nexus still require a passport. It’s like TSA Precheck for the customs line. You used to only need a card, but I believe that changed a couple years ago.

If if you need the passport quickly there is an expedited option or you can go to DC and get it the same day.

If traveling by car, the new passport cards work too. Also serve to get you past the "Real ID" thing if you don't feel like going through what it takes to get your DL upgraded.

Passport is all you need. Always tell them you are traveling for personal reasons.
Line is much shorter and they welcome you to Canada. Business line is longer and more questions , at least has been my experience in Montreal.

Passcard/passport or enhanced DL. IMO, it's easier and more pleasant to get into Canada. Getting back in, the US border guards can be real pricks, IMO

As mentioned, No DUI's by anyone in your party or they will be denied entrance.

Dude, it's Canada. It doesn't even count as international. You show your passport and go through the Canadian citizen line for customs. On the way back US border patrol clears you from customs before the flight.

They will refuse entry and put you on a plane home for a number of business related violations. I had a contract with Saint John Shipbuilding years ago. Got held and sent home in Dorval airport for a wrong answer regarding my work permits.

How far back will a DUI keep you out, I got one about 35 years ago. Will they let me in?

Maybe, it works both ways, old run partner I used to work with had a DUI from when he was 18, he lives by North Dakota and goes across the board lots, never an issues. Unless it shows up I'm not sure how they know.

Drunk drivers kill way more Canadians than the occassional terrorist refugee.
Gotta mitigate the right risks.
