Crossing Made Easy
Really - it's easy! But, please be aware that the new proof of citizenship laws are now in effect. U.S. and Canadian citizens need either a passport or one of several other accepted forms of I.D.
to drive to and from Windsor and Detroit. If you don't have one, you should apply for a passport now, so you'll be ready to cross the border any time you want. It really is that easy.

Canadians: 1-800-461-9999 (English), 1-800-959-2036 (French)
United States: 1-877-227-5511
You can still come to Windsor, Essex County and Pelee Island any time. Just bring along the proper ID, and you're good to go - and get back home, too!
Make sure you bring your passport, and keep your crossing easy!
