Frequently Asked Questions
Can you take Amtrak to Niagara Falls?
Do you need a passport to go to Niagara Falls?
U.S. citizens do not need a passport to visit the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. If you want to visit the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, a valid passport, passport card, or another WHTI-compliant document is required for re-entering the U.S., and a passport is a valid form of ID for entering Canada.
For U.S. citizen children age 15 and younger, an original or copy of a birth certificate, a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or a Naturalization Certificate also work for land travel, but passports have the added benefit of working for air travel.
If you're planning on traveling to Canada with children, you may also need to bring proof of custody. If you're traveling with children for whom you don't have full legal custody, you may be required to show a notarized affidavit of consent from the child's parents.
