    1. Is it really true by some what many people told me that nowadays is so impossible to get in Canada?

    It depends on how you cross. I used to live near Pittsburgh, PA, and we would go across the border as you could drink and gamble when you were 19. Just a driver's license did the trick. A standard driver's license wont do it anymore.

    If crossing by land, you can use your passport or passport card. I have some friends who live in northern states, and they tell me border states have enhanced drivers licenses that can be issued which allow land access to Canada.

    I have never flown out of the country, but I am guessing that a passport would be required.

    As long as you have nothing to hide and your paperwork is in order, it shouldn't be. Just make sure your passport has enough time on it before it expires

    I'm trying to get in the country as well but I believe and heard from some that it will be easier if I get a job first. Any thoughts?

    I'm looking into immigrating there, just wanting to move to a new city. Getting a job is a priority as it seems to be the easiest way.

    Well I am not an expert but I would check with the Canadian immigration beforehand. If you come in on a tourist visa and then say you are looking for work without the proper paperwork they will give you grief.

    You can check sites such as jobsaloon(dot)com for a list. I've read in this blog uniivaa(dot)com that they have tools and articles that may help!

    As any country entry point officials. They can be nasty and they can be nice

    That's absolutely correct. It is always harder to enter most, if not all, countries simply to go find a job. It is easier to first find a job while you're still outside, and then have your employer inside the country get you to the necessary paperwork (visa, work permit, etc...) that would allow you to get in fairly easily...

    I have the NEXUS card that allows me to get into Canada easily with a retina scan...

    Nexus cannot circumvent looking for a job but it is a game changer for travel in general. And for Canadian nexus holders the no charge global entry rocks.

    I did not mean to suggest that one could get into Canada with NEXUS to find a job. I was just indicating how I get in and out of Canada. With the NEXUS, I do get Global Entry as well...for $50 or 50% off of what it would cost to get GE directly in the US.

    Do some U.S. charge cards cover the cost of global entry?

    Yes, the AMEX Platinum, among other "high-end" cards, does cover the cost of Global Entry. In fact and incredibly, AMEX platinum retroactively gave me a $100 statement credit for Global Entry when they made it a cardmember benefit, even though I'd paid nothing for it because I was one of those who got Global Entry for free to pilot the program back in 2009.

    Impossible no, harder than it has been yes. Thanks to some unnamed loud mouthed US politician (claiming that terrorists where invading the U. S. of A. through Canukistan) some of us have issues for the rest of the world Canada is basically wide open.

    Well one wanted to put up a wall/fence too. I guess he was worried about terrorist beavers in his state.
