Do I now need a passport to travel to the United States?

Though passports are the document of choice for travel, Canadian citizens do not currently require a passport to travel to the United States. However, Passport Canada encourages Canadians who are considering traveling outside Canada to obtain a passport, as it is the most widely accepted proof of Canadian identity and citizenship.

On April 5, 2005, the United States Government announced the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) requiring all visitors to and from the Americas, including Canadian citizens, to present a passport or other accepted secure document (still to be determined by the United States) to enter the United States by December 31st, 2007.

The WHTI will now be implemented in two phases as follows:

December 31st, 2006 - All citizens (including Canadians and Americans) transiting in the United States en route to or from the Caribbean, Bermuda, Central or South America will require passports.  All citizens (including Canadians and Americans) traveling by air or sea to, from or through the United States will require passports

December 31st, 2007 - All citizens (including Canadians and Americans) traveling by air, sea or land to, from or through the United States will require passports

For further information on United States policy, check directly with the US State Department at www.state.gov

Individuals with future travel plans that would be affected by the proposed new rules are strongly encouraged to obtain a passport!

*U.S. postpones deadline for new travel policy

Washington -- The U.S. government upheld plans yesterday to require travellers from Canada, Mexico and other allied nations to show a passport or other secure document to enter the country.

The Departments of State and Homeland Security said they expect to adopt the new policy officially by the end of the year. But they pushed back by a year the date when the requirements would begin to affect travellers.

Under the new timeline, all who travel by air or sea from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Bermuda, and South and Central America will have to show a passport or one of four other secure documents by Dec. 31, 2006. Travellers crossing land borders will have to comply by Dec. 31, 2007. AP
