A jaunt to Vermont? Here’s what to expect at the border
Starting tomorrow, the United States will require all U.S. citizens returning from Canada by air to have a passport. A drivers license and birth certificate will no longer do. This will undoubtedly increase lines at airport customs.
However, the law doesn’t go into effect for car passengers until next year. So, if you’re thinking of heading to, say, Stowe or the Adirondacks by land, you shouldn’t be inconvenienced. (Unless you’re on the bus, which took a zillion years to get through customs even before 9/11).
