In my opinion, the USA borders aren't as interesting as the European ones.
So here you have border Sl. Šamac - (Bos.)Šamac

I think you misunderstood that, the USA shares with just two countries (three, including that small sea part between USA and Russia) the border and that's, for me, rather boring

Has anyone here experienced land border crossing into the USA as a third-country citizen?
Has anybody crossed as a third-country resident with his own vehicle?

Apparently it takes an hour or so, the normal visa-waiver form doesn't apply for land crossings so you have to do it in the office at the border, and it takes a while to process. That of course if you are a citizen of a visa-waiver country. If you have a visa I guess it's less complicated at that point, because you already have the visa.

I did (both)!

France is (considered today as) a third-World country, right?

By "third country," Corvinus meant from a country other than (1) the U.S. or (2) the bordering country.

My mistake then .
But, but, but keep in mind the fact that the glorious Kingdom of France shares a maritime border with Canada... (approx. 800 miles north of Boston)

The French would be "un pays tiers," I think.

But a maritime border with Canada still isn't a border with the U.S.

A friend of mine (Italian passport) was at his friend (Canadian passport) in Montreal and they did a trip to the USA with his car (registered in Canada). They had the passports stamped in both direction, I think, but having an European citizenship shouldn't create a lot of difficulties.

Hm apparently it does:
https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/det...ada-or-mexico,

So for me, it looks that for Visa Waiver citizens, there are three different "requirement sets" when entering, depending on how exactly you enter:
1) land crossings: no ESTA req'd, seems to be the easiest,
2) air or cruise ship travel: ESTA req'd before travelling,
3) entering by private sailing vessel: ordinary visa req'd, Visa Waiver does not apply.

OK ... this is what I expected.

Thus, you also crossed in your own vehicle? French-registered? Or USA/CDN/MEX registered as a resident of one of these?
... and yes, I wrote "third country" not "third-world country", but easy to mix up if reading fast

My understanding was there's no road between Colombia and Panama.
Lately, mamy Cubans escaping the Castro dictatorship travel to Ecuador (one of the very few people that does not requiere visa from Cuba), from there to Colombia and then, cross the Darien jungle on foot because there is no road.

And you see what inequality of treatment we get in exchange - No visa for Americans required at all to come to Europe (EU/Schengen), nor any "waiver" certificate to buy in order to enter - Not to mention that many EU members are required purely and simply to get a visa, even for transit in USA .

It is possible. I've only heard Czech referring to Reich.
