“Starting Thursday, telling a customs agent you’re a citizen will no longer be enough to enter the United States.

For years, customs agents have accepted verbal declarations at border crossings, but a new rule taking effect this week requires documents to prove identity and citizenship. The simplest way to comply is to carry a passport or a driver’s license and birth certificate, but U.S. Customs and Border Protection will accept combinations of about two dozen valid documents.” (Arizona Republic)
