Here are some helpful tips on crossing the border between Blaine, WA and British Columbia, Canada. (The following information is subject to change).

Entering Canada: What is needed
PLEASE NOTE: As of June 2009 - New Document Requirement for Land and Sea - The documents that will be allowed after this date are Passports, NEXUS Cards and Enhanced Drivers License.  Birth Certificates will no longer be accepted after this date, nor will Drivers' Licenses that have not been upgraded to the new Enhanced Drivers License
.

US aliens are required to bring an Alien Registration Receipt Card as proof of residence. Naturalized citizens should bring their naturalization paperwork. A rule of thumb is bring as much identification as possible, the last thing you want is to get stuck at a border crossing because you didn't bring enough ID.

You will be denied entry into Canada if you have any felony convictions, DUI charges, and other major crimes. Minor traffic violations such as speeding, parking, tailgating, etc., don't count. Also, have your car registration ready if asked.

Entering the United States: What is needed
PLEASE NOTE: As of June 2009 - New Document Requirement for Land and Sea - The documents that will be allowed after this date are Passports, NEXUS Cards and Enhanced Drivers License.  Birth Certificates will no longer be accepted after this date, nor will Drivers' Licenses that have not been upgraded to the new Enhanced Drivers License.

Expect car searches as they have become the norm since 9/11.

Children traveling into Canada/USA
If you are traveling with children and crossing the border into Canada or the USA, you should:
1. Carry identification for each child.
2. Divorced parents who share custody of their children should carry copies of the legal custody documents.
3. Adults who are not parents or guardians should have written permission from the parents or guardians to supervise the children.

Currency and Monetary Information
All physical importations and exportations of currency and monetary instruments equal to or greater than CAN$10,000 or US$10,000 must be reported to Customs.

Pets
Dogs and cats from the U.S. that are at least three months old need signed and dated certificates from a veterinarian verifying that they have been vaccinated against rabies within the last three years. The certificate must clearly identify the animal. If your dogs or cats are less than three months old, you do not need a certificate of rabies vaccination to enter Canada. However, the animals must be in good health when they arrive. Most pet foods are not allowed to cross the border.
