I was refused entry into Canada because of my DUI. What can I do?
I am a US Citizen and had a DUI 3 years ago. I tried to enter Canada but I was refused entry because of my DUI Conviction. What Can I do to get into Canada? I am a business person and have occasion for frequent travels to Canada.
Your DUI conviction renders you inadmissible to Canada and therefore you would require a Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) to enter Canada. TRPs can be issued either at a Canadian Consulate or a Canadian Port of Entry. In cases where criminality is serious it is always advisable to apply for your TRP at the Canadian Consulate. TRPs are generally difficult to obtain even for minor offenses so it is important to carefully prepare these applications in order to persuade an immigration officer to approve your application. TRPs can be single or multiple entry and can vary in duration. We have wrote extensively on this subject here and here
