Quebec - Maine, New York, New Hampshire, Vermont

This is good news as it means that you can drive into the United States from Canada. You can go on a road trip with friends and family or drive down to visit a friend or relative in the United States. In order to cross the Canada - US border as a Canadian permanent resident, you are required to apply for a non-immigrant visa and present this to US customs officials. As a Canadian citizen you will be required to present documentation as proof at the border crossing. Parents travelling with children are required to show supporting documents and may also be asked for a signed consent letter confirming that the child has permission to travel abroad if travelling without their spouse. Similar to airports, some border crossings also have duty free shops with specified duty free allowance.
