Jan 13 '20 at 19:59 comment added reirab @MichaelHampton Ah, sorry, I initially misread your answer as referring to the fee for ESTA.
Jan 13 '20 at 14:03 comment added DJClayworth @gerrit In the sense that they would not let me in unless I paid it, yes. They did allow me to go elsewhere, get he money and return, so it wan't recorded as "denied entry".
Jan 13 '20 at 9:03 comment added gerrit @DJClayworth Are you then denied entry?
Jan 12 '20 at 22:29 comment added Vince O'Sullivan @MichaelHampton Yes, that would explain it. All such cross-border trips originated from the US.
Jan 12 '20 at 18:29 comment added Michael Hampton @VinceO'Sullivan I don't know why you wouldn't have been charged as I don't know your immigration details. But the big one that comes to mind is automatic revalidation; if you were already in the US and went over to Canada for a short visit, and were readmitted under your previous admission, you wouldn't be charged the $6 again.
Jan 12 '20 at 15:10 comment added Vince O'Sullivan Is this a recent change? I am a UK citizen and have driven several times, (including by car ferry) between Seattle and Vancouver with my UK family and never incurred any charge.

Jan 12 '20 at 3:07 comment added DJClayworth Oh that $6 fee would infuriate me every time I crossed the border and forgot it. "Six dollars please. No we don't take Canadian money. No we don't take credit cards or debit cards. No there isn't a cash machine or exchange bureau near here. The nearest business is the liquor store five minutes that way. Have a nice day."
