As of June 1, 2009, a U.S. law requires Canadians to present a valid passport or other acceptable document denoting citizenship and identity to enter the United States by water or land. U.S law already required Canadians to present a valid passport to enter the U.S. by air. If you do not have a passport, now is the best time to apply. Remember, the passport is the recommended travel and identification document for all Canadian travelers.
