Getting into Canada is pretty easy, eh. Getting back into the States is harder, and Canada won't let you in without the ability to get out. You will need either a passport, enhanced driver's license, NEXUS card etc. Check any airline's website for details. You will also need proof of ownership of the car. If it's yours, fine. If it's your parent's, it's ...

I found a decent ticket, 12 hours, direct from YVR to NRT, for $1200 CAD. Thinking I should snatch that up. $1,200 CAD should be considered a reasonable round-trip price from North America to Japan. Sometimes you see lower (though rarely below $1000), and sometimes much much higher. I would say that is around the average price these last few years, ...

If you enter Canada to visit, there is no difference between "a few hours" and "a few months". You would need to get the same permission in either case. It's unclear from your question whether you are a permanent resident in the US, and this makes a difference for entry into Canada. US permanent residents can enter Canada for a visit without any additional ...

I am surprised nobody mentions VOIP. With VOIP you technically have a fixed line number that works over an internet connection. There are various apps for both iOS and Android. I personally like Zoiper. My current provider offers polish numbers which will work over a Canadian internet connection. So your friends and relatives can simply call you in Canada ...

As I see it, you have three options. Option 1: Skype I like this option because all you need is a credit card and internet connection. You can make calls from your computer or a smartphone with the Skype app. Option 2: Calling card Two calling cards off the top of my head: CiCi and Vox. Note that to use this option, you will need a land line or ...

Skype out can be used to to call land lines or mobile phones pretty reasonably from computers and some other devices capable of running Skype. It's a couple cents a minute to Poland, IIRC, so basically almost free.

Yes best bet is to get a local number plus a calling card. Usually at hotels, local calls are free which takes care of the first part. If you must use a cell phone, than any prepaid number will do. It costs under $10 for the SIM and you can load in increments of $10 with most plans. We do not have many providers and you have to do the work to find out ...

If you can enter a country, you can generally transit there without worrying about the destination and all other complex rules for transit (which only apply to people who cannot enter the country without visa). Since Canadian citizens can enter the UK for tourism and other purposes, they can also transit there without visa.

In general, yes, you can - under a process known as "Automatic Revalidation". In short, Automatic Revalidation allows your existing visit to the US to continue if you have left the US to a neighboring country (ie, Canada or Mexico) and returned - even if your visa is no longer valid (which in effect, yours isn't as you've used your single allowed entry). ...

The first thing to know about all-way stops is that they are used in low volume intersections. You need to know all the edge case rules about what if people arrive simultaneously but that isn't what you normally need to deal with. You also need to know that "at the intersection" means having reached the white line painted across the road at the same point as ...

I got all of this from here How to Handle Four-Way Stops: The Dummies Guide The simplicity of the four-way stop can easily be shown in these few key concepts. A four-way stop is any intersection with a stop sign in each direction, a flashing red light in each direction, or a broken traffic light should be treated as a four-way stop normally would. ...

You will need separate permission to enter Canada, regardless of whether you have a visa for the US. This Government of Canada page will tell you if you need a visa, and what kind, based on your nationality and purpose of visit. In general you will need a visitor visa for Canada if you required a visa for the US, but there are exceptions.

No, it's not a scam. This company is very real, and if you ask an agent that calls you for proof, the agent will send you information about the company, and most important, you can ask for identification numbers of the Immigration consultants - which you can search up on the ICCRC website. It's very real, it's just that some people don't really listen to the ...

Officially if entering the US via land border then you do not need an ESTA, however you are still able to use the Visa Waiver Program as you come from a country that is allowed under the Visa Waiver Program. At the border you will be required to fill in a I94W form, be photographed/finger-printed, and pay a US$6 fee. There have recently been reports that ...

The work permit allows you to live and work in Canada, on a temporary basis. The requirements for such are on the Work Permit page online. Note the requirements are above and beyond having just the work permit - you need proof she is only visiting temporarily, for example. However, once you have a work permit, that works as a visa - you don't need an ...

We did the drive from Victoria to Ucelet and back on the same day in May of 2014. Next time we'll stay the night. It was a beautiful drive. Remote. We stopped to take photos along the way. It rained off and on with snow occurring in the mountain tops. We stopped alongside the lake for photos and in the park to walk next to the trees. We found a decent place ...

I know this might not be an answer exactly, but I can't leave a comment: We have taken US car seats to Canada (by car), Mexico and Europe (Denmark) for our kids. We have not have any questioning about them at the border, not even in Canada when the kids were in them. I have not have any one stop and check the seats there. In Denmark we used a private car ...
