traveling with dual citizenship

Asked by: 2104 views , , , , ,

I live in the Dominican Republic and I’m going to study in Canada in the fall on a scholarship.  My flight to Canada will be making many stops in the US on the way. 

I was born in the Dominican but I have dual citizenship because of my parents.  I’m not sure if my passports will allow me to travel through the States.  I don’t think I’m able to use my US passport in the states because of my scholarship, and since I’m a US citizen, my Dominican passport doesn’t have a US visa.  Would I be able to use my Dominican passport to travel to the states, and use my US passport as my visa?

    If you are a US citizen with a US valid passport, then you should have no problems traveling both through the US and into Canada.

    This is assuming that you do not have a criminal record or any charges pending that may render you inadmissible to entering either country.

    Kind Regards,
