Recuerde que su pasaporte
If you’re traveling between the U.S. y Canadá, remember that as of today, De junio 1, new passport rules are in effect.
Gone are the days when you could simply drive between the U.S. and Canada with only a driver’s license to flash to the border agent.
Under the U.S. gobierno Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, American citizens re-entering the U.S. need to present a passport, unEE.UU.. de paso del puerto de tarjeta, una Enhanced Driver’s License, o unNEXUS “Trusted Traveler” card. The same rules apply to Canadian citizens heading south of the border.
These ID requirements previously applied only to air travelers, but beginning today, the new rules affect land and sea border crossings también.
And if you want to see how these new rules are affecting line-ups at the border crossings, check with the Agencia de Servicios Fronterizos de Canadá o el EE.UU.. Customs and Border Protection Agency.
