(We got our passport photos at the local Rite Aid - and sheesh! I'm surprised they were accepted! They are terrible! LOL!)
There was just a special on TB about getting a refund, if you asked for expedited service because of travel where you need one, and will not need one now due to changes.
So, I'm asleep on the keyboard and you got awful pictures ..........
Hi Maine Geocachers!
The first pre-registration form that we got from the U.S. is from hollora.
And thanks also to Cache Maine and Northwoods Explorer for your pre-registrations.
About the new requirements for travelers between the United States and Canada, on our "Rendez-vous Québec 2008" website, we are thinking of adding a webpage specific to U.S. Citizens with contents like this:
Could that be useful for U.S. Geocachers who never came here in Canada?U.S. Citizens
New Requirements for Travelers Between the United States and Canada
Effective January 23, 2007, all U.S. citizens traveling by air to and from Canada are required to have a valid passport to enter the United States.
As early as January 1, 2008, U.S. citizens traveling between the United States and Canada by land or sea (including ferries), may be required to present a valid U.S. passport or other documents as determined by the Department of Homeland Security. Ample advance notice will be provided to enable the public to obtain passports or passport cards for land/sea entries.
American citizen travelers are encouraged to apply for a U.S. passport or the passport card when it becomes available, well in advance of anticipated travel. American citizens can visit travel.state.gov or call 1-877-4USA-PPT (1-877-487-2778) for information on applying for a passport
