I have a family friend who is traveling with her family on a bus tour to the States next week. They're permanent citizens of Canada, but they don't have a passport yet, so they're traveling with their Chinese passport. They have a valid visa, but their passport is expiring in June.
The tour bus operator company won't let them go with them unless they can get through the border at least once before the trip. I'm taking them tomorrow but will we get any problems? I think she'll have better luck going to the States with the tour company than me because they have a start and end date. I'm just driving them over the border, which seems significantly more sketchy to me.
But anyways, if we get turned away, does anyone know how we can convince the tour company to take them still? It's their fault for not checking their passports beforehand, but they did drop some heavy money for this trip and it would suck if they couldn't go.
