Driving to Canada and back with greencard without passport?

Recommended Posts

Can someone confirm if this is still true - that a green card holder only needs the "green card" and does not need a passport to drive into Canada and drive back into the USA?

I am an Indian national with a green card here in the US. My Indian passport has expired and have not renewed it yet. I am looking to drive into Canada and back for a two day trip to Toronto.

Any one with recent experience driving into Canada and back, please advise.


Thank you in advance

""When travelling by land or sea directly from the U.S., you will only need to provide proof of your U.S. lawful permanent resident status (such as your Green Card).""

Carry a printout of both the above pages.
