Dear editor,

I want to take issue with the article by Daniel Joyce in the September 2002 issue of Truck News.

In this article he talks about the new requirements for Canadian landed immigrants with UK Commonwealth citizenship to hold a valid entry visa before entering the U.S.

Perhaps Mr. Joyce could have added a disclaimer stating that this requirement does not apply to Canadian landed immigrants holding a United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland passport.

I personally spoke with a customs inspector at the Peace Bridge and he said that there is no requirement for a landed immigrant holding a British passport to obtain this visa.

The only requirement for them is to have their passport and landed papers with them when they cross the border.

Ed: While you are correct, Daniel has it on good authority that this rule is about to change as the U.S. looks to further enhance homeland security.

As he stated in the July issue of Truck News, even those Canadian landed immigrants from Ireland and the UK previously exempt, will need a Visa.

Remember this was something he said the U.S. State Department would announce soon – his source wasn’t sure exactly when it would be made public.
