Snoop Dogg Wants To Become a Canadian Citizen in a Month
Back in 2016 many celebrities threatened to move to Canada if Donald Trump was elected the President of the United States. Although many threatened to do so, not many have yet. Last week, Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber (Baldwin) started their move to Canada and now Snoop Dogg has announced he may be doing the same as well.
At the launch for his brand new book, the rapper revealed that he considers Canada his second home and even wants to get his dual citizenship here. Snoop went on to say that he wants to move here and become a citizen by next month. Many people assumed it was for the recent legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada but Snoop actually blamed politics. He told the media at his book launch that “Canada loves him and he loves Canada”. He went onto say that he dislikes Trump and he wants to leave the United States because of him. Snoop mentioned that although he doesn’t like Trump, its been made clear that Trump doesn’t like him either.
Snoop Dogg said he would like to become a dual citizen by January 2019 and insisted many times to the media at the events that he is so serious about this. He proved his allegiance by then singing a rendition of our national anthem. He sang, “O Canada, let me in your home, so I can be a citizen.”
But is becoming a dual citizen in a months time realistic? Not at all but Snoop Dogg has options. In order to become a Canadian citizen or hold a dual citizenship Snoop Dogg has to be a Canadian Permanent Resident first. Below are some requirements for Canadian citizenship:
1. Applicants for Canadian citizenship have to be over the age of 18, and permanent residents.
2. These permanent residents must live in Canada for three of the four years before their application, or 1095 days. You do not have to be a permanent resident for all of this time, but the time spent as not a permanent resident only counts as half days.
3. To apply for citizenship you must be able to speak basic English or French, which are Canada’s official languages. You could be asked to undergo a language test as a part of your citizenship application.
4. Demonstrating knowledge of Canada is an important part of Canadian citizenship applications, and in doing so you will have to pass a Canadian citizenship test. The test will be on things like your rights and responsibilities as a Canadian citizen, as well as things like Canada’s history, geography, government and symbols.
Snoop Dogg isn’t the first celebrity to start their move to Canada there have been several that decided to have a life in both the US and Canada such as Michael Buble, Rachel McAdams and Mark Wahlberg.

After initially having a very bad experience with one of their immigration consultants and after posting a negative review on Google I was immediately contacted by the Managing Director to reschedule another consultation to try and provide me with a more positive experience. I have been impressed by their attention to customer service as a result of this and I appreciate the initiative that they have taken to turn my negative experience into a positive one. My second consultation was a great experience, I spoke with Brian about my Canadian PR application and he was able to give me great advice and was extremely helpful. He answered all my questions and explained the process of how to apply and was very patient with me which I really appreciate.
Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
