The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) of the U.S. government establishes new travel document requirements that are already in effect for crossing the border to enter or re-enter the United States from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean by land and sea. The goal of the new requirements is to facilitate entry for U.S. citizens and legitimate foreign visitors, while strengthening U.S. border security. All United States, Canadian and Bermudian citizens are subject to the new requirements
