Canadian Travel Documents for Air Travel

Canadian citizens travelling by air to, through, or from the U.S. must present one of the following documents:

  • a passport, which must be valid for the duration of your stay; or
  • a valid NEXUS card when used at kiosks at designated airports.

This requirement applies to all Canadian citizens, including children.

The NEXUS program offers a simplified and expedited border clearance process to low-risk, pre-approved travelers. Children under the age of 18 require the consent of a parent or legal guardian to enroll in NEXUS. Consult the CBSA website for more information on eligibility.

There is also a $5.50 USD border crossing fee when travelling to the U.S. by air. This fee is normally included in the ticket purchase price.
