Canada Modifies Entry Rules for Dual Citizens

September 2016, 21
EMAIL  Print A+
From September 30th, the Canadians having dual citizen have to show a Canadian passport while entering the country. 

Approximately 40000 Canadians working and residing in the UAE return home during holidays or for work meetings at least once a year. Earlier the dual citizens were allowed to enter the country using their foreign passports along with a citizenship card or a provincial driving license to verify that they were citizens of Canada. According to the new rule, this practice will end for dual citizens, 30th September onwards. 

According to the statement released by the government, the Canadian citizens won’t be permitted to enter the country without a proper Canadian passport, as part of the latest electronic travel authorization system.

The Canadian government has warned the dual citizens by releasing an official statement stating; “Canadian citizens will need to have appropriate documents to travel to Canada before they can board their flight. A valid Canadian passport is the only reliable and universally accepted travel document that provides proof that you are a citizen and have the right to enter Canada without being subjected to immigration screening. Make sure that the expiry date of the passport is well beyond your planned return date”.

The only valid documents now required to enter Canada are “a valid Canadian passport, a Canadian temporary passport, or a Canadian emergency travel document”.
