iPassport? iPad lets man cross US-Canada border twice

NPR reports that a Canadian resident crossed into the US and returned again without a passport but with his passport scanned into his iPad. Having forgotten his passport at home, he showed the border officer his iPad with a picture of his passport on it and with a little delay was eventually waved through. The story is also available in its rage comic form.

The case is making some headlines though seemingly without repercussions beyond a statement in which “the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency confirmed that its policy is to not accept scanned images of passports.”
