Is a passport required to move to Canada?
Not always – it depends on how you plan to get there. The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative requires U.S. travelers to present documents proving their citizenship. Ideally, this is a passport, but you may be able to use other documents depending on your mode of transportation. However, the Canadian Border Patrol recommends you carry your passport if you travel internationally, regardless of your transportation choice and the requirements.
Note: If you don’t have your passport and need one quick, be sure to check passport processing times. Routine and expedited service times can vary based on the time of the year.
Let’s look at each mode of transportation and what documents are required when entering Canada.
