United States President Barack Obama’s proposed 2012 budget includes a fee on Canadians who will be arriving by boat or plane. The $5.50 passenger inspection fee is supposed to bring additional funds in to the cash strapped US government.
For those that travel regularly into the US, we’re very well aware of the extra fees and surcharges tacked on to an airplane ticket.
The only good news is that those who drive across the border will not be affected by this new surcharge.
No date has been set for if and when this fee will implemented.
