Tips on making the border crossing easier.

Crossing the Canadian border is usually quite routine and effortless.  You simply drive up to the booth and the custom officer will ask you a few questions.  Be truthful to the officer’s questions and you need not volunteer any more information than they ask.

There is only a small chance that you may be randomly asked to pull your car to the side for a spot check by the officers.  Remember to bring your proper forms of ID and also a copy of your motor vehicle registration.

Be aware that if you have had a Drinking While Driving conviction you may be denied access to Canada.  Call ahead and work this out with the Canadian boarder.

What do I need to cross the border?

A Passport………There is a new thing called PASSPORT CARD which is good for 5 years and is cheaper also!

Any child traveling with an adult whom is not his or her parent needs a letter of permission from the parent.

PROOF OF CAR INSURANCE-
The owner of the car that is crossing the border also needs proof that the car is insured in Canada.  This is obtained by going to your USA insurance office and asking them if it is covered.  If it is then they give you a form or card to prove it when you get to the border.  They dont always ask for this but it is necessary if they do decide to ask.

How should my fish be prepared for transportation across the border?

All fish must be prepared or packaged so they may be immediately identifiable as to the type and size of each fish. Fish can only be transported in the same vehicle as the license holder.

Here are some of the preferred methods:

  • Gut and gill (each fish must be tagged by the license holder)
  • Filleted and put in a Zip-lock bag (Only 1 fish per bag, at least 2 inches of skin left on each half of fillet, bag is labeled by license holder, and fillets are laying flat so approximate length can be determined)
