Have you been denied entry to Canada because of a past DUI conviction? You’re not alone. Many people who’ve tried to travel to Canada have been surprised that such a criminal conviction – even if committed a long time ago – can make it impossible to enter Canada. What you need is an experienced immigration lawyer.
How are you denied entry at the border after a DUI conviction?
