For this DUI discussion, Tracy Ellis and Jonathan Rands, an experienced Bellingham DUI Attorney, talk about the impact a DUI can have on a person trying to enter Canada in general and more specifically our northern neighbors in BC.

The inadmissibility complications are simply not worth the risk, so as always Jonathan's advice is to not drink and drive. A DUI charge alone, before any conviction is ever entered can render a person inadmissible to other countries, but specifically, BC Canada. I am not a immigration attorney and do not report to be able to help an inadmissible person become admissible. However, my knowledge of both WA and BC criminal systems and because of that i am able to provide an excellent DUI defense with an eye towards maintaining admissibility to to BC.
