RV Travel to Canada PASSPORT INFO - 

short article answers all Q.        (see below)

 

             All AIR passengers must have a valid PASSPORT to ‘fly’ to Canada or any other country for that matter. However, some RVers plus car travellers carry special coded Drivers Licences or PASS cards. They work well for water and/or land travels . However if you must fly home in an emergency you will NEED a Passport. The cards use RFID (Radio Frequency ID’s) which can be read from 20’ away.  Details about WHTI for Homeland Security  www.dhs.gov/files/programs/gc_1200693579776.shtm  (Comprehensive Links  are at bottom of page)  Find many FACTS and  beneficial info from CBP here. www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/travel

If one parent is travelling alone – a letter from the other parent/guardian is a must … All kids who travel by Air & are under 16 years of age must carry a Passport
