US Passport Info

U.S. Border Crossing Requirements Have Changed - Make sure you are compliant today!

Starting June 1, 2009, U.S. citizens returning home from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean or Bermuda, by land or sea, are required to present one of the travel documents listed below.

U.S. Passport - This is an internationally recognized travel document that verifies a person's identity and nationality. It is accepted for travel by air, land and sea.

U.S. Passport Card - This is a new, limited-use travel document that fits in your wallet and costs less than a U.S. Passport. It is only valid for travel by land and sea.

Enhanced Driver's License (EDL) - Several states and Canadian provinces are issuing this driver's license or identification document that denotes identity and citizenship. It is specifically designed for cross-border travel into the U.S. by land or sea.

Trusted Traveler Program Cards - NEXUS, SENTRI or FAST enrollment cards can speed your entry into the U.S. and are issued only to pre-approved, low-risk travelers. The cards are valid for use at land or sea; the NEXUS card can be used in airports with a NEXUS kiosk.

BC Fishing Licenses Now Available OnLine

As of May 15, 2010, Elysia Resort will be selling all fishing licenses through the E-Licensing system, as manual paper licenses are no longer available. We will continue to offer the same types of licenses, including Freshwater Angling Licenses for Residents, Non-Residents and Non-Resident Aliens, as well as Classified Waters License. You may also purchase your fishing license on-line yourself by visiting www.fishing.gov.bc.ca.

The new Non-tidal (Freshwater) Fishing E-Licensing system allows anglers to register to obtain an angler number and purchase their basic Non-Tidal Angling License, Classified Waters Licenses and Conservation Surcharge Stamps, at any time. Anglers may also obtain electronic licenses from their local Service BC Centre or any license vendor who may offer this service. For a listing of Service BC Centers and license vendors, go to http://a100.gov.bc.ca/pub/lvs/.
