If you recall .. as of January 23, 2007, a new American law required everyone entering the United States by air to have a passport.

Apparently .. that creates too many lineups at the borders.

Under the revised procedures, American air travellers would only be required to prove that they had applied for a passport in order to re-enter the U.S. from Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Bermuda.

The temporary rules will be in place until September, according to reports.

The shift could provide an economic boost to Canadian businesses that rely on U.S. consumers and have worried that the new rules, combined with the high Canadian dollar, would seriously reduce the flow of cross-border traffic.
