A previous DUI, DWI, or other criminal convictions will make you “criminally inadmissible” to Canada. Here are some important things to know before your next trip north.
Have you been convicted of “Driving Under the Influence” (DUI) or “Driving While Intoxicated” (DWI)? Your drunk driving conviction can make you “criminally inadmissible to Canada,” even if your conviction was more than ten years ago. This means that if you want to get into Canada from the US or any other country with a DUI or DWI conviction, you are more likely to be denied entry. This inadmissibility applies as well to felonies, misdemeanors, and other criminal convictions, all of which may keep you from setting foot in Canada.
