You can quarantine at your final destination. If you are cleared to fly, you may board a connecting flight to reach your final destination. You do not need to quarantine (self-isolate) before connecting, unless your final destination requires you to quarantine at a designated location first. https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid/travel-restrictions/provinces#...

Taking your question at face value: Yes, there are extensive road, rail and bus connections between USA and Canada. There are very many road crossing points on the 8,891km land border between the two countries which allow private cars to cross, and rental cars depending on rental agreements. Buses and trains run across the border between most major cities, ...

In addition to the other answer, for Canada, one notable exception to the general strict inadmissibility rule on criminality is that you may still be admissible if your only conviction is an offence that could only have been prosecuted summarily in Canada. You should still ask a Canadian immigration lawyer familiar with the issue, as it is not within the ...

Many people who have criminal records can not travel to Canada without special permission. The Canadian government has an overview of the rules, but many crimes which may seem relatively minor to you are included on the list. Anecdotally, it seems that the Canadian and US governments share a lot of data here, so it can be difficult to avoid the rules. I know ...

I don't think you'll have a problem entering Mexico. I had a misdemeanor that still shows up on my background check and I have gotten in just fine. However, I do know of some people who have been denied entry to Mex. Canada is a different animal. My buddy who served in the Military was refused entry because of a DUI conviction. It was bad because he told me ...

So perhaps you drive your rental car to Vancouver, drop off your cat at your new residence, drive back across the border, return the car, then find transportation back across (...

I checked again, and I’m fairly confident this wasn’t showing up last night, but it now seems that Avis has exactly one “Mystery Car” option to go from Seattle to Vancouver. (Maybe not anymore, as I’ve just booked it.) The issue, then, seems to be one of inventory management instead of blanket policy changes. I also called Service BC and confirmed that it’s ...

Your best bet is to use U-Haul, although for some reason their prices are highly unreasonable if you choose Chicago rather than Seattle as the pickup location. They currently quote me $343 for a move from Seattle: But a whopping $2,796 for a move from Chicago: So the solution is to drive/fly to Seattle, hop on a UHaul truck and then drop it off in ...

The CBSA website recognizes the 18-month extension, so it may be assumed that NEXUS members who qualify for the 18-month extension will also continue to be treated as active members north of the border. In addition, I spoke on the phone with one of the Canadian NEXUS offices at 1-800-842-7647 on Dec 1. They explained that if a person has submitted a renewal ...
