What are the rules for crossing the Canadian border?
U.S. Citizens Don’t Need Tourist Visas
Everyone entering Canada must provide proof of citizenship and proof of identity. A passport or NEXUS card is the easiest way, but neither is required to enter Canada.
Can you cross into Canada without a passport?
This friendly border crossing agreement used to be mutual; however, now the WHTI requires that U.S. citizens have a passport to return home via air. Canada will not allow a U.S. citizen into the country who does not have the proper documentation to return home.
Does it cost money to cross the Canadian border?
Do I have to pay a fee to cross the border? There is no fee to visit a Duty Free store, however there is a border crossing toll charge at select border crossings. You can pay in Canadian or U.S. currency.
