New passport rulesStarting this week, U.S. and Canadian citizens must produce passports or a sharply limited number of alternative documents when entering the U.S. from Canada, Mexico, or the Caribbean. Previously, all that was required was a photo ID or driver’s license. The new rules are part of a broader border-control crackdown proposed after 9/11. Other allowable travel documents include a certificate that a passport has been ordered, or a so-called enhanced driver’s license with biometric data.
