Additional Information

When crossing the border using public transportation, you will be required to disembark at the border while customs officials check the luggage compartment and the passenger area of the bus. You will be asked to present your passport before being allowed to re-embark on the bus. Public transport companies take the inspection time into account in their schedules, and while mass transit is usually treated efficiently, the companies have no power over delays.

Driving a rental car across the Canada - U.S. border is usually not a problem as long as you have made prior arrangements with the car rental company. Make sure you have a copy of the rental agreement with you and that it states you have permission to take the vehicle across the border.

If you are driving a private car which isn't registered in the name of someone in the vehicle, bring written proof that you have the permission of the owner to take the car into the other country.
