Visiting Canada for a UK Green Card Holder

Hello Everyone!! It's been ages since I've been back. Just enjoying life and marriage post immigration. :-)

My husband and I are planning a vacation to Canada this fall, and I am wondering if there is anything special we should be aware of. He has his 10 year green card, has a valid UK passport, and a state ID. Do we need to know about anything for him to go to Canada or back to the US? I am assuming that all he has to do is produce these documents to proceed back and forth at the border.

We live in Southeast Michigan, so passing at the Detroit/Windsor border is a fairly simple ordeal. Just need to be prepared if there is anything we should know.

Thanks much!

Hey Liza! Long time no see. :)

Visiting Canada is like any other country -- just produce the documents you have (won't need the state ID) and you're as good as gold. star_smile.gif

Have a wonderful time!

Canada does not require visas for US green card holders, not that he would need one. UK citizens can get into Canada with just a UK passport anyways.

You use your US passport to get into Canada as a US tourist, and your US passport to get back into the US as a returning citizen.

He uses his UK passport to get into Canada as a UK citizen [he could also use his US green card to get into Canada as a US permanent resident tourist], and his UK passport + Green card to get back into the US as a returning permanent resident.

You're both good to go, it sounds like. The state id doesn't really enter into it.

Have fun!


DON'T PANIC
