According to the US Department of State, Bureau of Counsular Affairs, Trips to Canada, Mexico, or nearby Islands If you are admitted to the United States under the VWP, you may take a short trip to Canada, Mexico, or a nearby island and generally be readmitted to the United States under the VWP for the remainder of the original 90 days granted upon ...

To enter into Canada you need http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/security-securite/admiss-eng.html If you are a citizen of the United States, you do not need a passport to enter Canada. However, you should carry proof of your citizenship, such as a birth certificate, certificate of citizenship or naturalization, as well as photo identification. (this ...

Canada would require proof of U.S. citizenship, which a birth certificate may or may not suffice. But U.S. law requires that U.S. citizens enter and exit the U.S. with a U.S. passport except as provided by the President. And what the President provides is what the CBP requires, documented here. Basically, a passport, passport card, Enhanced driver's ...

If you want to make a quick trip I would recommend getting a Passport card and a NEXUS card / Global Entry card. Quoting the wikipedia article on NEXUS: NEXUS cardholders are generally screened more quickly at the border, however they are still subject to standard immigration and customs checks, and may be selected for secondary screening. ...

You can always (or almost always) extend a car rental. Generally this is done by just calling the rental agency 24 hours before the scheduled drop-off time to request additional time. Naturally, it happens automatically, as well, if you don't return the vehicle as scheduled, although it would very possibly incur penalties to do so. And if you wait too long ...

The short answer is, a, sure, you must check out your luggage when you arrive, and b, you'll have to check it in again 4 days later. (it's 99.99% unlikely the next airline will allow you to check it in four days early.) regarding the weight, check carefully with your ongoing airline.

For a layover under 24 hours, it should be possible to check your luggage through to the US and you could therefore go through the passport check and take a quick trip to the city without collecting your luggage. However, a 4-day stopover is usually too long for that, even if the whole trip is on one ticket, so you will almost certainly have to collect your ...

Like American Thanksgiving, Canadian Thanksgiving is largely a family affair. You won't find outdoor celebrations, fireworks displays, or anything like that to the same extent that you would on July 1st or Victoria Day. However there can be major events coinciding with Thanksgiving. If you happen to be in Kitchener, Ontario, you can take part in the second ...

Silly rabbit, Trix are for Americans! Or maybe not. Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) appears in Health Canada's "Food additives permitted for use" list, with a specific permission for "Dried breakfast cereals". So unless they're wildly exceeding the limits, it seems unlikely that Trix would be banned for this, even though that chemical name sounds ...

Travel to Japan from YVR doesn't have much charter and without much fluctuation in price. Your best deals are to call a Japanese travel agency like IACE or HIS in Vancouver which both have English speakers available. We travel every year and that's about as cheap as you'll get it without booking via China, Taiwan or Seoul. Generally, 3 months ahead of time ...

For some reason, proof of travel is not required if you apply at the Arkansas Passport Agency, according to Where to Apply. If you've already got an appointment in Atlanta, then perhaps you should call the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778 and ask them what would be sufficient proof.

From the FAQ of the Canadian Embassy in Austria: I do not have a return ticket. Can I travel to Canada with a one-way ticket? We strongly recommend that travellers who enter as tourists present a return ticket upon entry into Canada, but this is not a legal requirement. Port of Entry officers may want to see proof that the person entering ...

If I was a customs officer and I saw one person has a visa to stay, and the other does not but bought a one way ticket I would most certainly assume that person planned to stay. And in fact, she does. Don't start your time here with a lie. Call whoever is processing her visa and ask what to do. She may have to change her flights and stay back until the ...

Actually your first concern will be the airline, as rules require them to make sure you have the correct documentation to enter Canada BEFORE they let you on the plane. It is entirely possible that they could prohibit your girlfriend from flying. Once you get to Canada, it is a crap shoot, they may simply take her word that she is visiting only for a few ...

Officially the answer is no. The Truck Ferry doesn't quote any tolls for cyclists or pedestrians. Unofficially the answer is likely to be no either, as using this ferry doesn't appear to be a known method to cyclists on either side of the border. Your current options are: The Tunnel Bus, which requires the bike be disassembled and in a bike bag, and the ...

You do not need a transit visa if you remain airside when you transit through Germany. Auswaertiges Amt (the Federal Foreign Office) publishes a list of countries whose citizens require a transit visa, and Egypt is not on it. In addition, holders of a valid Canadian visa or permanent resident card do not need a transit visa at all. If you must leave the ...

As @AriBrodsky said in his comment, if you are departing Canada from one of 8 airports that have United States border preclearance which are staffed by US Customs and Immigration officers, your luggage may be cleared all the way to your final destination. If you are not departing from an airport with these preclearance procedures implemented, then you will ...

The green / red is an indicator that it is your turn to approach the window to speak with the agent. When you approach the border you are supposed to stop outside the booth lane, then proceed to the window on green. Not sure about the "right", as I have never seen that light before. I would guess that it means go to the right lane (by the small booth ...
