Planning on travelling through Canada for a few of those summer dTb shows, do you need a passport to cross the border now? Last summer ya didn't, I'm not sure if times have changed... I've heard something that you need it now. I know you definitely have to have one if you're flying there, but I'll be driving. If anyone knows, please post. Thanks

I know the artist who travels from Canada to here to record his album has to have both a passport and visa to get into the country. I'm making an assumption here that someone going into Canada would need the same.

You need a picture ID and proof of citizenship. A passport fills both requirements. Another option is a driver's lisence and birth certificate.

Effective January 1, 2008 a passport will be the only acceptable form of identification for returning to the U.S. (You'll be able to go to Canada, but you'll have trouble getting back without the passport.)

Here's the poop:

Everytime I travelled to Canada to work,(I'm a photographer) I always had to have working papers,I learned the hard way the first time and was detained at the border for 6 hours till Reuters( my employer at the time) could fax them some sort of documentation. During those 6 hours my equipment,cases,lenses,etc. had a thorough going over. My motto is be prepared and cover your a$$.


It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death. It shall be life.

ABB - you might as well go ahead and get your passport. That way you will have no worries with traveling over the border and you'll be all set for those future trips you'll be taking (Amsterdam anyone?)

You just might have trouble at the border crossing into Canada when a agent may ask, " Weren't you through here the other day with a different passport ?"

Mike, you definitely need a passport now to get into Canada. The law changed sometime last year and it is required now.

And the lag time now is lengthy; I sent mine in for renewal 4 weeks ago, and have nothing back from them yet, other than a cleared check. If you are in need of one, don't hesitate to apply. You can pay extra $$ to have it expidited. The big wheels are turning rather slow.

I applied for a passport about 4 weeks ago (non-expedited.) I was told it would take about 10 weeks. A woman I work with just applied and was told the wait is now up to 12 weeks.

This is from the link that Bob posted.


Q. When will the travel initiative be implemented?

In the proposed implementation plan, the initiative will be implemented in two phases. The proposed timeline will be as follows:

January 23, 2007 Passports, Merchant Mariner Documents (MMDs) or NEXUS Air cards would be required for all air travel from within the Western Hemisphere for citizens of the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Bermuda.

January 1, 2008 It is anticipated that on January 1, 2008, U.S. citizens traveling between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda by land or sea (including ferries), may be required to present a valid U.S. passport or other documents as determined by the Department of Homeland Security. While recent legislative changes may permit a later deadline, both the Departments of State and Homeland Security are working to put all requirements in place by the original deadline. Advance notice will be provided to enable the public meet the land/sea border requirement.

I don't think you need a passport yet to drive over the border. My brother passed through it the other day and didn't have one. I definitely better look into it now since that's less than 12 weeks away.

Sorry to lead you astray on that one, Mike. I thought the law had already changed.

Hi Mike, you just need a photo ID and birth certificate at present. Good idea to get a passport anyway,you'll need it in future. Are you going to the ABB shows at Rama July 31/Aug.01 ? All the usual Canuckleheads will be there...

Mike

It is not needed yet but would make crossing easier. I only had to show photo ID recently crossing both ways.

If you get a chance, go to the DTB show in Montreal. The Jazz Festival is a great time. Music everywhere.

Have fun.

Do you know where tickets can be purchased for the Quebec City show? Right now, the festival website only shows passes sold in Couche-Tard stores in Quebec City...

Not too sure about Quebec City. But the Quebec version of Ticketmaster is called Admission. I would imagine that they are selling tickets. (Actually I just tried there and no luck)

But I did find this

www.billetech.com.

Hope it helps.

applied for mine 9 weeks ago - was told it would be around 10 weeks but if you apply now (peak season) it is running around 15 weeks. Unless you wish to 'expedite it faster' for more money of course! Plus you need to write separate checks for the USPO.

still waiting for mine to arrive!

don't make any plans till you get the passport in your hands.

I believe as of this past Monday you MUST have a passport to enter Canada and Mexico. I dont think the old way of entry with a Birth Certificate and Drivers license will get you in anymore.
The law changed last year but was extended through last Monday. Better check

Call before you Haul!!!!!

Bob is correct its the re entry............The cost of a Passport went up this week, It wasnt the law change.
