A friend and I were thinking of taking a trip up to Vancouver Canada... does anyone know if you need any special ID or anything to go between countries or will a drivers licence and social security card be enough?

from http://travel.state.gov/travel/cbpmc/cbpmc_2223.html

The proposed implementation timeline has two phases:

* Beginning January 23, 2007, ALL persons, including U.S. citizens, traveling by air between the United States and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda will be required to present a valid passport, Air NEXUS card, or U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Document, or an Alien Registration Card, Form I-551, if applicable.
* As early as January 1, 2008, ALL persons, including U.S. citizens, traveling between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda by land or sea (including ferries), may be required to present a valid passport or other documents as determined by the Department of Homeland Security. While recent legislative changes permit a later deadline, the Departments of State and Homeland Security are working to meet all requirements as soon as possible. Ample advance notice will be provided to enable the public to obtain passports or passport cards for land/sea entries.


fyi - it took about a month to get my passport, I applied for it around october 10th and received it Nov. 20th.

If your planing on doing the trip by land before the 2008 deadline don't worry about the passport. I'd only get a passport if you think you'll be travelling outside the U.S. again within the 5 year life of the passport, otherwise it's just a waste of your money.
