As a Canadian Citizen with a Green Card, do I need a passport to fly back and forth from the US to Canada?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
Yes you do.
I just flew to Canada 2 weeks ago. Everyone had to have a passport in order to board the plane.
I flew back to the US from Canada 1 week ago. That's right. You had to have a passport to board the plane back in to the US, as well.
If you go to the airport without a passport, just see how far you will get, before they turn you away.

A returning lawful everlasting resident isn't required to have a valid passport on the time of their go back. 8 CFR 211.2(a) says: Passports. A passport valid for the bearer's get entry to right into a overseas united states a minimum of 60 days previous the expiration date of his or her immigrant visa will be presented through each and every immigrant except an immigrant who: Is getting into lower than the provisions of §211.a million(a)(2) through (a)(7); and eight CFR 211.a million(a)(2) says: regular. except as presented in paragraph (b)(a million) of this section, each and every arriving alien using for admission (or boarding the vessel or airplane on which he or she arrives) into u.s. for lawful everlasting position of living, or as a lawful everlasting resident returning to an unrelinquished lawful everlasting position of living interior u.s., shall present day between suitable right here: (2) a valid, unexpired sort I–551, everlasting Resident Card, if in search of readmission after a momentary absence of lower than a million twelve months, or when it comes to a crewmember usually serving on board a vessel or airplane of us of a registry in search of readmission after any momentary absence linked at the same time with his or her responsibilities as a crewman. So, you do not favor a passport because you're returning pursuant to eight CFR 211.a million(a)(2). sparkling as dirt, suitable? in reality, all you want is your eco-friendly card. in case you've a passport, large. If no longer, that's high quality too.

Not until Jan 1. Until you are a citizen, you need to keep up your Canadian passport. It will be stamped by the US consulate.
