Sportbike west... passports?

Discussion in 'Eastside' started by mcjunky, Jun 21, 2005.

  1. I heard you are gonna need a passport to get back into the U.S. from canada starting july, anyone know if this is true?
    Sure would suck to have a killer weekend at sportbike west in B.C. and not be able ta get back in :shock:
    I already got mine but if you are planning on riding up you may wanna check on this.
     
  2. This year I hear is the last year you can go to SBW without a passport. They will be requiring them as of next year. That's just what I heard though.
     

  3. I cross the border 50+ times a year, Its worth it to just go down this week and get your passport REGARDLESS of the law. Gotta call, more later

    Here's what I found on the 'net, looks like you're OK until '07...but if you got one I'd take it anyways, they've definitely gotten a lot more strict about that stuff and a passport is probably gonna help speed the process for you --

    What are the new passport requirements (04/06/2005)?

    On Tuesday, April 5, the U.S. State Department announced details of the proposed "Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative." If the proposed rules are enacted, U.S. citizens will be required to carry a passport for travel to or from certain countries/areas that were previously exempt. The proposed implementation is as follows:

    * December 31, 2005 - Passport required for all air and sea travel to or from the Caribbean, Bermuda, Central and South America.

    * December 31, 2006 - Passport required for all air and sea travel to or from Mexico and Canada.

    * December 31, 2007 - Passport required for all air, sea and land border crossings.
     
  5. December 31, 2005 – Passport or other accepted document required for all travel (air/sea) to or from the Caribbean, Bermuda, Central and South America.
    December 31, 2006 – Passport or other accepted document required for all air and sea travel to or from Mexico and Canada.
    December 31, 2007 – Passport or other accepted document required for all air, sea and land border crossings.
     
  6. in the meantime you could probably use your birth certificate if you have access to a certified copy of one - all they need to establish is place of birth
    as in country - but a passport is obviously better -

    Looks like it's back to Kerblockistan with you, infidel!
     
  11. well that's a different deal entirely - you'll need a passport - or they may keep you in canada which aint so bad considering their great roads - course in the winter you'll need to figure out some other activites -

    best get yourself a passport and be done with it - but they do take a few weeks or more to arrive so get on with it -
