The short answer: NO The long answer: To enter Canada from the USA as a US citizen you need to produce the actual passport or an enhanced drivers license or a standard drivers license plus birth certificate. The return to the USA you need your passport or enhanced drivers license. Photocopies of passports are not legal documents for crossing a border, as ...

No, the passport and Advance Passenger Information merely need to be correct at the time you check in. You can update the information at check in, either online or at the desk. Remember that, if you are a visa waiver national travelling under an ESTA, you will need a fresh ESTA with each new passport you use to enter the United States. If you have been ...

There doesn't seem to be an issue with you taking a car from Vancouver and returning it in the US. Just did a search on Kayak picking up in Vancouver Airport and dropping off in SeaTac airport and the major rental companies are happy to oblige even though it's getting a bit pricey.

Your plans will be fine. As long as there are less than 90 days between your first arrival in the US, and last departure from the US, then there will be no problem. The VWP 90-day clock keeps ticking for the days you are in Canada, but that's not an issue for you.

Canada is in my opinion pretty close to Switzerland: it is mostly interesting for its nature, the mountains. It differs thanks to its immensity, its wilderness. If you want to explore it and not only the mountains, since Switzerland has a lot, I would recommend you remote areas like Vancouver Island (I really remember this feeling of small, isolated ...

According to http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas.asp, Vietnamese citizens need a visa and a biometric passport to transit in Canada:

Definitely Montreal. The best cuisines: wonderful food, fabulous shopping, the unmatched culture, the best shows (Grand Prix, Jazz festival etc), the music, the theaters, Catherine St., the numerous cathedrals, famed walkways, the "Mont Real" mountain, biodome, insectarium, the fashion and the most beautiful women in Canada. Multilingual. Ottawa: tulip ...

You will clear US Customs and US Immigration at Toronto prior to arriving in the United States, in a procedure called Preclearance. You no longer need to collect your baggage for inspection but of course US Customs may inspect your bag if they wish. You do not need to go through Canadian customs. The procedure is well sign posted: follow the purple signs. ...

If you plan to leave the ship then you need a visa. If you stay on the ship, you may not need one. But best to ask the cruise line, as they may require all passengers to have documentation to visit all ports of call even if you don't plan on going ashore.

Yes, you need to apply for a Canadian visa. The length of the stay does not matter. Do I need a Canadian visa if I have a United States visa? Yes, you will still need a Canadian visa (temporary resident visa) to enter Canada. A visa from the United States does not permit entry to Canada. If you are a permanent resident of the United States ...

This is not a wisecrack, but why rent in Vancouver for 2 days when the rest of the time would be in Oregon? Is this a special car or agency that will be reimbursed by your company? With all the stipulations and barriers, it might just make more sense to see if you can return the car to a local office and then hire a vehicle in Oregon instead. You may need ...

As pointed out by @mkennedy, Canada Post has a service called International Reply Coupon, which, as per their web-site, appears to be a one-size-fits-all that's valid in 191 countries (except for Taiwan), bearing a cost of 6,00 CAD. https://www.canadapost.ca/cpo/mc/business/productsservices/atoz/irc.jsf However, the problem comes from the fact that, as its ...

This is very much a matter of judgement on the part of the border officer. There is no magic number. I have seen (on Border Security) a person with $8 and no bank account allowed in because the people he was staying with assured the officer they would cover all his food and expenses while he stayed with them. I've seen an American coming in near Vancouver ...

As the OP asked about what happens in Hong Kong, not Vancouver, I will expand on my comment. If the airline you are flying from Manila on has an Interline agreement with Air Canada, then it is likely your bags will get checked through to Canada. If they do not, then you will need to go through immigration in Hong Kong, claim your bags and checkin for your ...

You must get your luggage at Vancouver as this is your first port of entry into Canada. You also must go through immigration first. Sources: http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/travel-voyage/ivc-rnc-eng.html and personal experience of landing, oh, I do not know, perhaps a billion times in Vancouver :)

This depends on the airport, in your case airports. You will be told when you check in but you could always call ahead to find out. In may cases, it will be tagged to your final destination and your bags will be labelled I2I which means International-to-International. If they are not, you will have to move them yourself. Since your final leg is domestic, it ...

VIA Rail no longer sells bike boxes. The baggage staff at Toronto Union Station has confirmed to me orally that VIA Rail has stopped to sell bike boxes. Travellers who wish to take their bicycle as checked luggage do not need to pack their bicycle in any way. Greyhound does still sell bike boxes at 10$ each, to travellers or non-travellers. Dimensions ...
