Crossing U.S. Borders: Customs and Immigration Information

Amtrak trains crossing international borders are subject to Customs and Immigration inspections en route. Although time is allotted in Amtrak schedules for these inspections, Customs and Immigration officials may delay trains if necessary for the performance of their duties.

Entry into Canada/US U.S. or Canadian citizens crossing the U.S./Canadian border are required to have a passport, birth certificate, citizenship certificate, or naturalization certificate. (Note: a driver's license is not sufficient). Non-U.S. citizens permanently or temporarily residing in the United States must have an Alien Registration Card (I-551 or I-688 bearing the proper endorsement on the reverse). All citizens of countries other than the United States or Canada not bearing an Alien Registration Card must have a passport, and citizens of many countries must also have a visa, U.S. Employment Authorization Card showing 210 as a section of law, or Canadian Form IMM 1000. Passengers not having the proper documentation are prohibited from entering the U.S. or Canada and will be detained prior to reaching the U.S./Canadian border. Persons under 18 years old who are not accompanied by an adult must bring a letter from a parent or guardian giving them permission to enter into Canada. Passengers planning international travel should write for customs information to: U.S. Bureau of Customs, 1301 Constitution Avenue NW, Room 6303, Washington DC 20229, or Embassy of Canada, Consular and Visa Section, 501 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington DC 20001.
