    I would get a passport, just for the ease of it

I even hitchhiked to the library once cuz my parents were too lazy to drive me haha. Ya, I'm a nerd.

    No, you don't offically need a passport to get into the United States yet but you will in 2007.

    If you're brown, DEFINATELY Get a passport, and be prepared for a major pain in the ass. I went last christmas, and i'm not brown, and it was a pain in the ass w/out a passport.

    If you're flying, DONT go through LA, fly directly out of calgary because we can do US customs preclearance in Calgary, and then land as a domestic flight in LV.

    My passport has been expired for over a year and I've crossed the border over 3 times in the last year with just a birth certificate and a drivers license.

    Although if have an expired passport you can bring that as well and use it as ID.

    If you don't have a passport by now, you may not get one in time, took me 3 weeks to get mine back in January.

    This question has been asked a hundred times. Do a search...

    But to save you the trouble...

    2007 if you go into the States by air or sea, you need a passport.

    2008 if you go into the states by air, sea or land, you need a passport
