U.S. Passport Rules
Land and Sea Travel to the USA
Travelers to the USA by land or sea
are required to present a passport
or other approved secure document
denoting citizenship and identity for
all land and sea travel to the U.S. The
Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
published the WHTI land and sea final
rule more than a year in advance of its
implementation to give the public time
to obtain the WHTI-compliant documents
they will need to enter or re-enter the
United States on or after June 1, 2009.
WHTI-compliant documents include a
Passport, a Trusted Traveler Card (NEXUS,
SENTRI, and FAST), or an Enhanced Drivers
Licence. The U.S. Department of State is
accepting applications for Passport Cards
and additional states and some Canadian
provinces are issuing Enhanced Drivers
Licences, both of which are options specifically
designed for land and sea border use.
DHS has instituted special provisions that
allow school or other organized groups of
children ages 18 and under who are U.S. or
Canadian citizens to enter the U.S. with proof of citizenship alone. U.S. and Canadian children under age 16 arriving by land or sea
from contiguous territory may present an original or copy of a Birth Certificate, a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, a Naturalization
Certificate, or a Canadian Citizenship Card.
With the implementation of WHTI, travelers are required to present a single WHTI-compliant document denoting both citizenship
and identity when seeking entry into the United States through a land or sea border. DHS says standardized, secure, and reliable
documentation help Customs and Border Protection officers to quickly and accurately identify travelers at land and sea ports of entry.
Both the Enhanced Drivers Licence and the Passport Card contain security features to prevent counterfeiting and include vicinity Radio
Frequency Identification (RFID) to help speed the entry process at the land borders.
