XK Xing the Border!

I should be taking a trip to Niagara Falls from Jersey in Thanksgiving... I just wanted to point out how nice of a vehicle the XK is for road trips. This is my first time to Canada and the falls and I am looking forward to it. Has any of you done this trip across the border yet?

You don't need one yet for land crossing.

Effective January 23, 2007, ALL persons, including U.S. citizens, traveling by air to the United States from Mexico, Canada, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda will be required to present a valid passport, (or if applicable, an Alien Registration Card, form I-551, Air NEXUS card, or U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Document), to enter or re-enter the United States.

sometime next year...if it doesn't get delayed again...they claim it'll hurt US/Canadian Commerce....I'm filling out my passport application as we speak

Here is a better answer...US Citizens Visiting Canada by Land or Water
The other date, which is when the WHTI will require citizens to present a passport when crossing the Canadian border by land or water, is yet to be determined. The deadline for the changes to take place, however, is June 1st, 2009. The deadline was previously January 1, 2008

Never know... he may be trying to pull an Evil Knievel and jump the falls.

Re: XK Xing the Border!

The hotel people said they changed the password requirement to 2009. You do need one to cross by air now.

Re: XK Xing the Border!

I heard they gave up the password for a secret handshake


Have fun. There is more than one crossing point in the area. I am not sure which is the fastest. Make sure you take some ID for the kids if any are going. They prefer birth certificates.

My 4 year old doesn't have a driver's license yet. :-) I hope birth certificate will do.
