Flying to Canada with 2 month old from US: Passport needed?

I'm considering about a last minute trip to Whistler, Canada but my 2 month old daughter doesn't have her passport yet. Is a passport required for infants or can she fly to & from Canada (from  Los Angeles) with her birth certificate?

To fly with your baby to Canada she will need a valid passport. An alternative could be to fly to Bellingham and drive to Whistler from there. It adds about an hour and half to the drive but the flight should be cheaper. However, you will be able to cross the land border with your passport and your baby's birth certificate. 



Mentioned in this answer:

  1. Bellingham (attraction)
  2. Whistler (city)

I would not try to travel without a passport to any foreign country. On the US gov travel site, it says anyone regardless of age needs a passport to travel outside the country.

By air, everyone needs a passport.

Your other option is something that US and Canada have for travelling land or sea (train [Amtrak] included) which would then not require a passport. You will require proof of citizenship (

Make sure you also have consent letter (if both parents aren't travelling with the child)

heres a link, hope it helps

Pretty sure you need a passport and I'm sad you're flying to the other side of the country and aren't coming to visit moi!

Hi Susan

Unfortunately I believe you're daughter will need a passport to come to Canada. But to be sure you can always check out and confirm it with the Canadian Embassy.

I hope this helps
