Mashable – You may have read about a Canadian man who got into the U.S.A. with no passport and only a scan of it on his iPad to show that he had one. After reviewing the situation for a few minutes, the border guard let him through and wished the man happy holidays.
So you can now get into the country with just scanned copies of a passport? Not quite. The iPad is just part of the story. The man in question, Martin Reisch, also showed the guard his driver’s license, and border guards can verify identities via other means, too.
