Canadian dual citizens from countries included on Donald Trump’s immigration ban from seven countries will not be affected by the executive order.
The Canadian Embassy in the United States shared the info on Twitter, which was also confirmed by the PMO:
Canadian passport holders and dual citizens will not be affected by the ban. Problems at the border? Call us 24/7 at 613-996-8885.
— Embassy of Canada US (@CanEmbUSA) January 29, 2017
There had been concern that some Canadians who are dual citizens of Canada and the nations on the banned list would be denied access to the United States.
As countries try to figure out the status of their citizens as it relates to the order, a US federal judge has blocked the deportation of individuals who were in transit to the US, with a valid travel permit, or who are detained at airports.
