Beginning December 31, 2006, the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative will implement new regulations requiring all travellers, including U.S. citizens, traveling to and from the Americas, the Caribbean, and Bermuda to have a passport to enter or re-enter the United States.

December 31, 2006 - Requirement applied to all air and sea travel to or from Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Bermuda.

December 31, 2007 - Requirement extended to all land border crossings as well as air and sea travel.
