A new survey suggests that Canadians are confused about when a passport is required to enter the U.S.

According to a new Harris-Decima survey, 51 percent of Canadians polled say they believe they need a passport to enter the U.S. at sea.

Thirty-nine percent say they believe a passport is required to enter at land border crossings.

In fact, Canadians only need a passport to enter the U.S. by air.

The survey also found 42 percent of those polled lacked a Canadian passport.

The survey of 1,000 Canadian adults was commissioned by Disney Parks Canada and conducted October through Wednesday.

The results have a 3 percentage point margin of sampling error.
