If you are planning to cross the border this weekend into the United States, make sure you have all the proper documentation and plan your trip as to avoid peak travel times between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection is anticipating heavy traffic during the celebration of Canada’s Thanksgiving on October 13th.

All travelers, including U.S. and Canadian citizens, are now asked to present proof of citizenship and identity when entering the United States at land and sea ports of entry. This requirement can be met with a passport, NEXUS frequent crosser card, an enhanced British Columbia or Washington State driver’s license, or a birth certificate with a driver’s license. Travelers ages 18 and under may present just a birth certificate.

Also it is advisable to review the “Know before you Go” regulations at for additional information concerning your trip into the United States.
