getting to and from canada

10 posts in this topic

Hi guys.

I got a question, What kind of documents do I need to get into and out of canada this year? I know that next yerar I will need a pass port. But I've heard and read from differant sources that you need a birth certificate and the next article says all you need is a picture ID. I figured you guys up north would be the better source to get the whole truth.

Thanks for your time and keep on fish'n

The Canadian authorities will usually ask for a photo ID and a valid driver's license has always sufficed for me. No offense meant by this, just an FYI - anybody in the vehicle with a past DUI will complicate matters considerably, up to not getting in.

Last year our car got through by just showing our photo id's. The other car in our group that was right behind us had to show ID's and birth certificates.

I would just spend the $15 to $20 and get a copy of your birth certificate and bring it with you just incase.

ok so no passport is needed but what about getting back into the USA from canada, do you need your passport to get back in?

Only if you are flying (then you would need one to get into canada also). They (USA) are stating once again that you will need a passport in 2008, but keep posted. They have been stating that for several years now.

This year I figured one might as well get the passport as one will need it so many other places and its only time and you will need it everywhere.

You could but they're really not credible unless you have an official notarized copy.

Correct, needs to be notarized from what I have been told. That goes for just about everywhere.

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.
