My son is 25 years...
My son is 25 years old and planning to travel to Canada next month. He read something that says he will not be allowed into Canada because he had a misdemeanor charge (DUI) in November 2015, and should be finished with probation in a month or so. Is any part of this correct?Just to mention, his passport that was issued when he was a minor has expired, so he is applying for a new one.

Unfortunately that is correct and many people are not aware of the restrictions.

It comes down to the specific border patrol agent and whether they will allow admissions. If it is a single incident and many years ago the agent may allow entry however there is no guarantee.

It is possible to secure permission in advance by requesting authorization; please see:

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
