Passports-610x457New Rule for Canadians with Dual Citizenship
According to the Toronto Star, starting on September 30, Canadians with dual citizenship must use their Canadian passport to travel back to Canada by air. This new air-travel rule is no doubt going to catch many Canadian dual citizens by surprise and by some, it’s being called a government cash grab. The article goes on to state that, “currently, Canadian citizens with dual citizenships can use the passport of the other country to enter Canada by air if they can provide proofs of residency in Canada, such as a driver’s licence and Canadian citizenship card.”

This may only affect a small number of Canadians—2.9% according to the 2011 Census—but if you’re one of them or have friends, family or colleagues who this applies to, hopefully you/they won’t be caught off-guard. To learn more, check out the article from the Toronto Star.
