I haven't been on here for awhile and don't even remember if I can ask questions on here related to traveling to Canada, but I thought I would try!

I am Canadian, I hold a green card for the US. My husband and I traveled to Canada last year for my sisters graduation and we got pulled aside by the CBP and were told that my husband could not enter Canada because he has 2 DUI records from years ago. We pleaded because we had traveled all day to get turned around and he allowed us to fill out a temporary visitors form that cost 200 dollars and that he had to leave Canada after 7 days. We had already entered Canada twice before and never been stopped for this and we were completely stunned and had no idea that his old DUI's made him inadmissible to Canada. The border patrol guy said we could fill out some kind of form from the Canadian consulate that would give him some kind of waiver or something, he didn't go into too much detail. Just wondering if anyone knows what this form is where I can obtain it etc? THANKS!!!

DUIs can and will make a person inadmissible to Canada no matter how old they are. IT's up to the CBP officer wether to let a person in or not. On your previous crossings they probably didn't look, or didn't care and let him in anyway.

Now he's been flagged with the visitor visa, he will have to apply for the waiver.

Also Canada has been upgrading their database with US criminal history, our countries are getting better at sharing this information and it is becoming more and more thorough. In the past the inforamtion may not have been available to them.

DUIs do make you inadmissiable to Canada without a waiver.
