Birth Certificate OK Still????

Postby browninga5m » Mon Jul 02, 2007 10:43 pm

Is it still OK to enter canada and the US with a birth certificate still?? I have googled it but find the answers very confusing. I have mine but my buddy that wants to go does not yet.. The way it sounds they extended the time to Jan 08 but not sure. Thanks alot for the help or if you can lead me to a better website Thanks Mike

If you drive a BC and gov't issued ID (DL) will work til Jan 1, 2008...If you fly you need a PP. If you have applied for a PP but don't have it yet there is a form you can get that shows you have applied and that will be ok too. Try www.travel.state.gov

I went to Montreal in June, crossed in Plattsburgh NY, drivers license and birth certificate is what I had.

Going to Canada they didn't even check my Birth Certificate, coming back they checked it but didn't really care. Just the standard lines from the Border Patrol.

passport

plan on a minimum of three months unless you pay extra expedite fee; i went regular pocessing and got my passport four days before i left; good news is that once you apply you can go to the us passport web site and track your appl.; if a problem with time you can download a form wh ich verifies your appl, and substitutes for pp.; our congressmen got tired of nasty phone calls so passport agency came up with temporary solution.

you have to have a passport starting Jan. 08 Unless they extend it again better apply for it early. Who knows how long it is going to take to get it...

It takes 3-4 months to get it and they are good for 10 years I believe. Fill out your app. soon, it takes awhile right now...
