If you’re crossing through Okanogan Country into Canada (or vice versa), there are a few things you should know. U.S. and Canadian citizens aged 16 or older need to present a valid, acceptable travel document, such as a passport, U.S. passport card, traveler card, permanent resident card or enhanced driver’s license when entering by land or water. Those under 16 may present a birth certificate or
Okanagan alternate proof of citizenship. Know the importing prohibited items. You can check out a list of items on the U.S. or Canadian Border Patrol websites. Be ready to declare all items with you in the vehicle to save time. Border wait times can be monitored online. Travelers should build extra time into their trip for the border crossing in case of delays.
International travelers should expect an inspection, even during busy holidays, when entering the U.S. The Oroville-Osoyoos border facility is the area’s only 24-hour crossing. Crossings with limited hours are located at Nighthawk (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily), Ferry-Midway (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily), Danville-Grand Forks (8 a.m. to midnight daily) and Laurier-Cascade (8 a.m. to midnight daily). More information on border crossing is available online at www.customs.gov or www.travel.state.gov.
