Many people don’t realize that there have been updates to the passport requirements for travel to nearby countries. U.S. citizens are now required to use their passports for air travel between the United States and Canada. The Department of HomelandSecurity may request proof of U.S. citizenship and photo identification when traveling by car or ferry.
The Government of Canada requires all U.S, citizens to present proof of citizenship and photo identification for entry into Canada. Please be aware that Canada may exclude anyone with a criminal conviction record, including driving while intoxicated (DWI) or under the influence (DUI).
You can speak a AAA Travel agent to get more information about any additional documentation you will need to travel or drive in the Canadian provinces.
