Travel Documents for Dual Canadian Citizens Flying to Canada

Starting November 10, 2016, individuals who hold dual citizenship (with Canada and another country) will no longer be able to use their foreign passport to enter or re-enter Canada by air*. Instead, they must show proof of Canadian citizenship.

Documents that prove Canadian citizenship are: a valid Canadian passport; a Canadian temporary passport; or a Canadian emergency travel document. For further information, see the Government of Canada's Travel Documents for Dual Canadian Citizens Flying to Canada webpage.

*Exceptions: Individuals holding dual Canadian/American citizenship and all dual citizens entering/re-entering Canada by land or sea.
