PASSPORT REQUIREMENTS EXPLAINED:
Contrary to the rumors out there... YOU DO NOT NEED A PASSPORT TO CROSS THE BORDER BY LAND!!
Sports Teams traveling by land only require athletes aged 18 and younger to provide a BIRTH CERTIFICATE and:
The group should be prepared to present a letter on organizational letterhead with the following information:
- The name of the group and supervising adult;
- A list of the children on the trip, and the primary address, phone number, date of birth, place of birth, and name of at least one parent or legal guardian for each child; and
- A written and signed statement of the supervising adult certifying that he or she has obtained parental or legal guardian consent for each participating child.
