Can I go to Canada with a DUIL?
Anyone charged with a DUIL, which is an acronym for Driving Under the Influence of Liquor, may be criminally inadmissible for entry to Canada unless they have been granted
permission from a government authority. Similar to other drunk driving offenses such as DWI and OVI, anyone with a D.U.I.L. arrest or conviction appearing on their criminal record
risks being refused entry by Canadian border agents unless they have been issued Temporary Resident Permit or Criminal Rehabilitation. Driving Under the Influence of Liquor (DUIL) is not a very common
drinking & driving offense, but for anyone that has one it is treated by Canadian immigration officials essentially the same way as a normal misdemeanor DUI. Consequently, the process of
crossing the Canadian border with a DUIL is similar to the process of crossing the Canadian border with a DUI.
