You need to call both the US and Canadian border patrol.


Border Patrol (BP) (green uniforms and white/green vehicles) generally work between the Ports of Entry (POE), INA212 laws.

If you want accurate information on rules about exiting and entering the United States, check with the Ports of Entry (POE), where the Officers wear blue uniforms and drive white/blue vehicles. These folks are the ones working in the 'booths' at the POEs. They are US Customs & Border Protection Officers (CBP), very different from Border Patrol Offices.

BP (green) Officers main focus is about illegal immigrants with second focus on illegal narcotics.

CBP (blue) Officers have vastly more legal authority than BP Officers, in order to conduct enforcement of laws for 44 other agencies within this country.

There is nothing better than getting a direct response from Canadian border officials & print it out.

Having said that I have some AK resident friends about to depart the Midwest next week to ferry their 5er home to AK. The word that they got from Canadian Immigration & Customs is that transiting by AK residents is fine, assuming virus free etc., & providing it is just that, a transit trip. No scenic detours. No stopping for a few days without good reason.

I was told 24 hours from into to out of Canada. I have no idea how that amount of distance can be done in such a short period of time however as long as you don't delay who is going to check?

Just don't turn it into a recreational trip. I have no idea of CG availability so at the last chance to dump & refill I'd be inclined to do just that.

Respectfully Lakeside 013104, US Border Protection & immigration have absolutely no say on who can or cannot enter Canada. That is entirely up to Canadian officials. You don't even stop at a US checkpoint on crossing into Canada.

Way too much fear based guesses here. Once across, regardless of what they might ask...24hrs to transit, there is not a chance anyone is going to say anything, unless a driver is spotted parking in Whitehorse going into bars and clubs..oh..wait...those are all closed.

And once IN Canada, you are golden...you are going to your country or origin...the US. There is no one being stopped or questioned as in 'where ya goin, bud'?

And...just an aside..it is not THE Yukon..it is ...Yukon.

The best place to find out what the horse is doing is ask the horse.
