Hi again, I am canadian visitng the us or other countries. I know canadians who have had a dui and are able to drive across many us borders. Will i have an issue at the toronto airport when flying out to vegas or other cities/countries?
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX receive a response today?
I will use my CAD passport.
There were no injuries no one involved except for me. No damage. Car was impounded -- proper procedure, court case ensued I pled guilty lost my license for nine months.....all has been reinstated a year ago , the incident took place Feb 2011, Court March 2011 License back July 2012.
I do know of a person who also experienced dui and travels via vehicle across many US borders without question.....
So technically, your simple DUI should not affect your ability to travel on your Canadian passport. But to be on the safer side, you should carry with you certified copies of the police report and the court disposition so that you have the least amount of problems/delays when you cross the border.
