Can you drive to Canada without a passport?

U.S. citizens traveling to Canada by land can present a variety of government-issued IDs and proof of U.S. citizenship to enter Canada, but a valid passport, passport card, or another WHTI-compliant document is required for reentering the U.S. A passport is a good standard document to use going in both directions, and it has the added benefit of also being valid for international air travel.

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 works for land travel—but again, passports are required 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 a notarized affidavit of consent from the child’s parents.

When you reach the Canadian border, all passengers will be asked to get off of the bus with all their belongings, including checked baggage, and explain to immigration the reason for your rip. The process for heading back to the U.S. will be the same, plus you must pass through security like you would at an airport.
