Entry/Exit Requirements for U.S. Citizens
Canadian law requires that all persons entering Canada carry both proof of citizenship and proof of identity. A valid U.S. passport or NEXUS card satisfies these requirements. When returning to the United States from Canada, all U.S. citizens are required to present a valid U.S. passport to re-enter the United States via air. For complete information, visit the U.S. Department of State.
Note: Anyone with a criminal record (including misdemeanors or alcohol-related driving offenses) may not be able to enter Canada without first obtaining a special waiver well in advance of travel. To determine whether you may be inadmissible and how to overcome this finding, please refer to the Canadian citizenship and immigration website.
International (non-U.S.) visitors to Canada, may find information on travel to Canada in the General Information section of this site.
