My memory fades a tad or two. I think one can enter
Canada from U. S. w/o a passport but one needs a passport to
re-enter U. S. from Canada. Is this correct? Thanks and happy RVing
to all.

Happy RVing to you & yours

Visitors from any country other than the U.S. have always needed a passport to enter Canada. On the other hand, because of a friendly border crossing agreement between Canada and the United States, Canada Border Services did not require U.S. citizens to present a passport to enter Canada. This friendly border crossing agreement used to be mutual; however, now the WHTI requires that U.S. citizens have a passport to return home. In this way, passport requirements for Canada and U.S. borders are different on paper, but, are in practice, the same. Canada will not allow a U.S. citizen into the country who does not have the proper documentation to return home.

(so now you have to have a passport)

Hi and thanks very, very much for your precise explanation.

I could be the only RV'er that was not aware/up-to-date.

Hopefully others will benefit from your knowledge.

Happy RVing to you & yours
