Dual Citizenship Air Travel Changes September 25, 2016

Quoth Huffington Post: Changes To Canadian Passport Rules May Inconvenience Dual Citizens:

As of November 10, 2016, dual citizens who hold Canadian citizenship, as well as some other foreign citizenship, will need to present their Canadian Passport at the time of entry into Canada, if they are travelling by air

According to the article, this does not apply to US-Canadian Citizens, and only applies to travel TO Canada by air. The article uses the example that a Canadian-UK Citizen flying to the US would be okay, as would the subsequent drive from the US to Canada.

This seems to strengthen the rule-of-thumb of always using the passport of the country you’re entering (for Canadian inbound air travel, at least).

Cheers!

Hi Matthew,
When you fly between Canada and the US, what documents do you carry with you? I personally carry my NEXUS card and US passport (I leave my Canadian passport at home). I need the US passport for the Global Entry kiosks at YYZ but I don’t need my Canadian passport for the NEXUS kiosks entering Canada.

Thanks

Hi!

I carry both passports and my NEXUS card, just in case.

Cheers!
