Entering Canada With a DUI Offense

For some people, world travel is a part of life or a big part of their work. If you are facing DUI charges and have a good reason to travel to Canada, a DUI conviction can block your travel plans.

Do you have family in Canada? Are you in the movie business and have a need to hop on a short flight to Vancouver to go to what’s been deemed “Hollywood North?”

Do you have big plans to travel to Canada so you can take in the country’s natural attractions, such as Cabot Trail (Nova Scotia), the National Reserve of Nahanni along the Mackenzie Mountains, or Gros Morne National Park?

According to U.S. News & World Report, the best places to visit in Canada, include:

  • Vancouver
  • Banff
  • Montreal
  • Toronto
  • Ottawa
  • Quebec City
  • Victoria & Vancouver Island
  • Halifax
  • Niagara Falls

Will a DUI block me from visiting Canada?

Unfortunately, Canada does not allow people with DUI convictions to enter their country. If you have family in Canada, or otherwise have a reason to travel to Canada, we suggest that you discuss your situation with our Orange County DUI Attorney, Virginia L. Landry.

The best solution is to fight your DUI charges and avoid a DUI conviction in the first place. If travelling to Canada is a big issue of concern for you, we can give you information regarding applying for a waiver, and we can answer other admissibility questions.

Will a DUI stop someone from entering the U.S.?

Generally, a single DUI conviction will not stop someone from entering the U.S., however, if someone has multiple DUI convictions, or if they have a DUI conviction and other misdemeanor convictions, then that person can be inadmissible. In such cases, the person would have to obtain a waiver before entering the United States.

Additionally, a crime of moral turpitude can make it so someone is denied entry in the United States.

Are you facing DUI charges and concerned about how a conviction would affect your travel plans? If so, contact the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry, Inc. to schedule a free consultation!
