Crossing the border from US to Canada questions
« on: July 15, 2016, 01:29:33 PM »
1)My passport expires on July 25 and we are crossing the US border to Canada on July 18 and returning on the 20th. Is it a problem that my passport is expiring so soon?
2) My wife's passport is in her maiden name, will they make an issue regarding the name?
TIA

(I apologize if there is already a thread for this, please let me know and I will move it over.)

Do they scan it?
If they have no way of knowing, then that answers question #2.

You shouldn't have a problem on either issue. Particularly when driving. I've crossed recently when an expired passport with no problem.
