The card is good for land travel only. If you are flying between the U.S. and Canada or Mexico you will need a full passport.

why is this so confusing?
is the passport card acceptable only for land ie: us to canada and mexico and the full passport for overseas travel? i have 2 nephews who are going on our annual fly-in for a graduation present and $45 a piece for the card sounds better that $100 for the full passport. thanks and good fishin

Deputy Dog:
Yes, the passport card is for use in north america, you can travel across to mexico or canada with it. If you wish to travel outside those areas you need a full blown passport. "Keep it simple" hope that helps-

Default Canadian air travel

I have found out it is OK with TSA to have reels with line spooled in carry on bag. What I need to know is: Does the Canadian equivilant of TSA allow reels in carry on to be spooled with line? In the past you had to have the line off. Lakerlover

Is this really necessary - a notarized letter from the wife allowing me to travel in Canada with my son?

A group of 4 of us just got back last Sunday the 5th. We had no trouble getting into Canada. On the return, 2 of our guys had not yet received their new passports but did have their tracking #'s. The U.S. agent gave them non-compliant brochures and said that if they tried to get into the U.S. again w/ out having their new Passports, they may be subject to an extensive delay as they continue to cross w/ out the proper credentials.

Exclamation The hang-up I found is often overlooked tell you file.

The hang-up I found in the application process that catches many off guard, and somebody may have mentioned it.....is the "Official Certified Birth Certificate" required to file....my original was not good enough, it was before...but not now...you need to order a new Certified Copy from the state you were born in...old or original hospital documents will not work.

So heads up...order that right off to get it on the road quick, or they soak you for $40 to overnight it when needed.

Exclamation Crossing into Canada with a DUI on your US Driving record

My friend would like to join me in Ontario but has a DUI on his driving record in the US from 2007.

Is it true that Ontario will not allow people to enter if they have a DUI/DWI on their driving record in the US? Does anyone have the specifics? Like... What if they aren't going to be driving in Canada but will simply be a passenger? Are all province rules like Ontario? Are they banned forever or is it for x years? Is there any way around the ruling?

Please advise. Thanks.

For a U.S. citizen to go to Canada with a DUI it is a felony per Canada law. It is not a felony for a Canadian citizen to come to the U.S. with a DUI per U.S. law. (This is why a Canadian can enter the U.S. with a DUI). A person must be charged and convicted for it to be held against you not just arrested and not charged and/or released BBBUUUTTTT hear is the kicker to this, if they want to they can send you back to get your court records if you were not convicted and it shows that there was some form of action taken against you on your record and they donít believe your story. For the most part only in rare situations will you be sent back to get your court records but it does happen? I hope this helps some of you. Never say never but the big one going to Canada is the DUI.
I thank God every day for our freedom and for our Armed Forces, Pray for their safety each day and thank them for their selfless time and sacrifice to our country. Without them where would our nation be? THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO. In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. ~Mark Twain, Notebook, 1935
