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.

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.
This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!
VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
