comment Canadian overstayed a US visit by one year what is the penality and when can he return to the US?
it's my understanding that this is permanent. It was for my uncle, anyway. I recommend you contact a US consulate for advice specific to your situation.

comment Is there a legal limit to the amount of cash one can carry on domestic US flights
i recently saw an episode of Border Security where an American producer brought $400k in cash (hundreds and twenties) into Canada to pay crew etc during a shoot. They let him and the money in. Obviously in order to get to Toronto he first had to travel within the US and the TSA or other authorities did not relieve him of the cash first. He declared it to Canada; I'm sure he also declared it earlier in his journey. So that's one data point that says you can sell your house for cash and probably be ok flying with it.

comment Electronic devices security on airplanes
pretty sure it was Turkish. I found the combination of "we will all watch the same movie" and "free wifi throughout the flight" amusing.

Are you trying to enforce transit points or find them? Not everywhere is reachable from everywhere else.

comment Can I cross over from Canada to the U.S. and back without my passport?
the "duplicate" is for a US citizen. It seems more likely that this is a Canadian citizen (the phrasing "go to the States" is not idiomatic for an American) and so this should be reopened. I won't vote to reopen it myself until Grace edits the question to make it clear what citizenship is involved.

comment How does one inform airlines of one's KTN, if the KTN was issued after a booking had been made?
On Air Canada, you can add it when checking in online. If it's already in your profile, it's already added when you check in online.
