I have my AP now, should have my GC before I go - like to hear about both senarios. I'm a Canadian (w/AP / GC)

Can I drive a MD plated car into Canada?

What paperwork do I need to bring?

My passport is in my maiden name, do I need to just bring my marriage certificate?

GC/AP are in married name.

Just want to make sure all my bases are covered before I try to return to the frozen tundra to visit the folks. THANKS!! :)

  • Yes, you can drive your Maryland-plated car into Canada. I have driven my Florida-plated car in 3 or 4 times. Make sure you bring the registration and proof of out-of-country insurance.
  • All you need is your greencard. Failing that, your AP document. I always carry my passport (in my former name) and my marriage certificate. Never been asked for them, but I carry them. You will need your passport, however, if you only have your AP. My AP was issued in the name that matched my passport.... even though I applied for it with my married name.
Have a great trip!

Thanks Krikit! (Love your LOL cat)

Is it okay that the car is in my husbands name?
