Crossing the Border into Windsor
Entry into Windsor is through the Windsor-Detroit Tunnel or the bridge. U.S. citizens entering Canada are required to present proof of U.S. citizenship (ie. birth certificate along with photo I.D. or valid passport).

Returning Home to the United States
U.S. residents returning to the U.S. who have been away longer than 48 hours may bring back $800 U.S. in goods per person duty free. One litre of alcohol and one carton of tobacco are included in this exemption, although you can bring back more for personal use as long as you pay duty and tax at U.S. Customs.

U.S. residents may also be eligible for a sales tax rebate. Save your receipts and stop in at the Tunnel Duty Free Shop to complete your rebate form.
