RE: COMMON travel document informal survey



fixed

Just an FYI:

I went to Toronto (via Niagra Falls), then onto Montreal and
back to NY via 81 near Kingston (1000 Island Bridge)last weekend 
(Sat thru Mon).

I had no problems getting into Canada :)  Of course, crossing 
at Niagra Falls is usually fairly easy anyway. We were asked
(1) our citizenship (2) where we were going and (3) the nature
of our business in Canada (a mini vacation was my response).

Coming back was a different story.  The requirement as posted
was "Have a Photo-Id Ready..." but after showing them both NY 
state drivers licenses (mine and my girlfriends) the customs guy 
says "is this all?".  Fortunately, we both had brought birth 
certificates with us.  After passing them over and waiting a 
minute or two for him to verify the licences against the 
certificates he let us pass with a smile.  <grin> At the 
time I was also making a few "colorful" comments on the 
long wait time ;-)
