Do you need a passport to enter the US?  Because now WE NEED one to enter the great white north.

no, i have never needed my passport to pass between countries. but i heard that is happening soon.
 
   also, i have a work visa here and its a good possibility I will be marrying an american woman in the next couple years...
 
   anyway, the deportation was a joke, i spent a few weeks at a lovely ski resort in the middle of freezing ass cold, almost uninhabitable canada.

Are you gonna play American Woman by The Guess Who for your wedding, eh?  It's quite obvious you've been hypnotized by our colored lights and wonderous ghetto scenes.

Y'all probably won't be surprise to know that we used a George Jones song, a Ralph Stanley/Jim Lauderdale duet, and a classical piece by someone whose name escapes me right now, at our wedding.

Canadians entering America will need a passport in 2007.  No fingerprinting though, unlike the rest of the world who will be finger printed on entry.
 
 And by 2008, most Americans who visit Canada won't be able to re-enter the US without a passport.  That is the reason why Canada is then going to make Americans take their passport with them - they don't want all the Americans left on their side of the border.  Let's make sure the blame gets put on the right people.

the three questions:
 
  1. Are you gay?
 
  2. Do you smoke pot?
 
  3. Are you carrying any crappy American beer into the country?

As of 01/01/2006.
 
 Or, if you're an easilly vetted VIP -type you are welcome to join the NEXUS scheme.  Or simply get a CANPASS if you travel a lot on business.  Both require a lot of snooping though, so if you're one of those who could be classified as an "ALTERNATIVE" -lifestyle type you better just stick with the old passport.

 Truth be told...you'll REALLY NEED the passport to RE-ENTER the U.S...not to gain admittance to the great white north:
 
  At Issue:  Your passport to more headaches
 
 Canada‚??s tourism industry is a strong supporter of increased border security - a fact of life in the post-9/11 world - but recognizes that freedom of movement remains essential. Maintaining the efficient flow of people across the Canada-United States border is a particular priority for the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC), given that over 34 million US residents visited Canada in 2004 alone, including more than 27 million who travelled here by car.
 
 However, cross-border movement is being threatened by documentation rules announced in April as part of the US government‚??s Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI): all travellers to and from the United States will be required to have passports or ‚??other secure documents‚?Ě to enter or re-enter the country. At the end of 2005, the new rules will apply to all travel from or through the US, by air or sea, to or from the Caribbean, Bermuda and Central and South America. By the end of next year, they will take effect for all air and sea travel to or from Canada by US or Canadian citizens. And, as of December 31, 2007, Canadian citizens travelling to the United States and US residents returning home via land border crossings will also be required to have passports or ‚??other secure documents‚?Ě.

This is the last time I'm going to say it.
 
 The US is requiring Canadians beginning next year (2007) to show a passport upon entry to the US.
 
 And the US is requiring US citizens to show a US passport upon re-entry to the US in 2008, prompting Canada to ask US citizens for their passport upon entering Canada so they don't have to deal with all of the Americans stuck on Canada's side of the border.
 
 There will be similar requirements for Baja, Mexico.
