Crossing Border From Canada to US

The video has been uploaded by Desi Immigrant in Canada. He talks about his recent trip from Ottawa, Canada to Pitsburg, USA. The journey is around 900 km long. He made an overnight halt in Toronto and then continued on to Pitsburg the next day. Being a weekend, the border near Niagra Falls was quite busy. Hence, you must keep in mind that travelling across the border, including toll and immigration formalities, will take a couple of hours. Also, if you are travelling to the US for the first time, there might be additional formalities needed.

We hope you got some useful information from this post to ease your travel across the US-Canada border.
