Documents for entry into the United States - Air Ports of Entry

Canadian citizens travelling by air to, through or from the United States must present one of the following valid documents:

  • a passport; or
  • a NEXUS card when used at kiosks at participating airports.

This requirement applies to all travellers, regardless of age, including children.

NOTE: All travellers (including Canadians) departing the United States by air to any destination (including Canada) must present a valid passport (or NEXUS card for return to Canada only). For example, if a Canadian citizen enters the United States by land by presenting acceptable documents other than a passport, and then plans to board a flight in the United States destined for Mexico (i.e. an international destination other than Canada), a valid passport is required for the air travel portion. Similarly, if a Canadian citizen drives to the United States and returns to Canada by air, a valid passport or a NEXUS card must be presented to board the plane. It is important to note that a passport is not mandatory for air travel within the United States.

Canadian citizens intending to fly to, through or from the United States should apply for a passport, keep it up to date and carry it with them when travelling. For more information about passports, please visit Passport Canada’s Web site.

The NEXUS program offers a simplified and expedited border clearance process to low-risk, pre-approved travellers. For more information, visit the NEXUS Web site.

For information on the new Passenger Protect program for air travel within Canada, please visit Transport Canada’s Web site.
