4 things to remember when entering Canada with a DUI or DWI- Resources Blog - US Immigration FAQs - Richards and Jurusik Immigration Law - Buffalo NY

A previous DUI, DWI, or other criminal convictions will make you “criminally inadmissible” to Canada. Here are 4 things to remember when entering Canada with a DUI or DWI.

  1. You might need a visitor’s visa. If a visitor’s visa is normally needed to get you into Canada, you will still have to secure one—even if you have a TRP.
  2. You might need to renew your existing TRP. If you’re not criminally rehabilitated, you’ll need to apply for a new TRP each time you travel to Canada.
  3. You might not get in. You may not be assured of entry to Canada even if you are technically criminally rehabilitated. It is up to a border authority to allow or refuse entry to any non-Canadian citizen.
  4. Always tell the truth. Tell the border officer the truth when asked if you have a criminal record.
