Though it's not recommended, US and Canadian citizens can enter Baja without a passport if they have official photo identification, such as a driver's license, plus an original copy of their birth certificate or (for US citizens only) a certificate of naturalization. But, controls on returning to the USA are tightening. Beginning in 2007, all US citizens arriving in the USA by air must show a US passport. By 2008, this may extend to passengers arriving in the US by land and sea. In short, get a passport.

Citizens of other countries who are permanent residents in the US have to take their passport and Permanent Resident Alien Cards (green cards). Naturalized Canadian citizens require a valid passport. Citizens from all other countries must have a valid passport and, in some cases, a tourist visa (see Visas, opposite ).
