New travel procedures introduced for dual nationality Canadians

Travelers who are dual nationality Canadian citizens and are planning to fly to Canada later this year will face a new procedure. Starting September 30, 2016, they will need to show proof they are Canadian to board their flight.

This process will happen automatically when passengers check in for their flight.

Canadian authorities advise that travelers who have a valid Canadian passport should use it on their journey otherwise they may face delays or be prevented from boarding their flight.
