Travelers To And From Canada Do Not Need A Passport - Yet!

However, Belitsky asks that travelers be prepared to present documentation such as valid U.S. passport, U.S. birth certificate, or Naturalization certificate to avoid delays. And he encourages people to secure a valid passport within the year to help expedite traffic at the Tunnel. But Belitsky says, "You do not need a passport before next January to travel between Detroit and Windsor." Recognizing the unique relationship we have in this region, the Tunnel is currently supporting the Departments of Homeland Security and State in developing a special card for people who frequently travel between Detroit and Windsor. However, people can now apply for a NEXUS card which will allow them expedited travel across the Tunnel. "NEXUS is a pre-approved clearance program that has succeeded at the Detroit Windsor Tunnel. NEXUS travelers are given a special card that allows them to enter a NEXUS dedicated lane and avoid the waits." The Tunnel has added a special feature to NEXUS and provides NEXUS approved travelers a NEXPRESS(R) card upon request, that allows them to enter the tunnel through a special lane, avoiding even further delays, often making travel between Detroit and Windsor seamless. http://www.newswire.ca/en/releases/archive/January2007/17/c6749.html
