Islanders’ tips for travelling to Victoria in March

  • Give yourself time to get here.
  • Valid passports are required for international travel.
  • Dress for the many weathers

Avoid the panic and rush by aiming to get here well in advance of your first conference activity. We are located on an island. Our US visitors must catch a ferry or a flight to get to Vancouver Island. Please factor in plenty of time for possible sailing delays, traffic, and getting through customs.

If you are travelling by air, land, or sea between the United States and Canada, you must present a valid passport. If you haven’t traveled internationally for a while, please check the date on your passport!

For more information, please visit: 

If you are a U.S. citizen and a Washington State resident, Enhanced Driver's Licenses (EDLs) have been formally identified as acceptable documentation requirements for land and sea crossings. Further information for Washington residents is available at the Department of Licensing website
