Minnesotans going north—or south—of the border now have an easier way to get there.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers visited the Duluth Boat, Sport, Travel and RV Show on Saturday to tell people about a cheaper, more convenient to cross the border.

CBP Officer John Swanson said travelers can get a Minnesota Enhanced Driver's License at the DMV for $15. That license will get them places where a passport was previously needed.

"They can use that at any land border or sea port," Swanson said. "If they want to go into Canada fishing, or if they want to go on a cruise into the Caribbean somewhere, it's good in Mexico as well, and that takes the place of a passport."

Swanson said it's important for CBP to interact with the public, so they can correct misinformation and answer questions that could save people a lot of trouble when they actually get to the border.
