Can anyone convicted with a DUI travel outside the country to Canada?
Not if it's in the last 10 years. If so there are various work arounds including a certificate of rehabilitation and a temporary residency permit. You will need the help of an immigration lawyer with DUI experience to get these, although the forms are available from any Canadian embassy or consulate.
Canada considers all DUIs to be felonies even a Misdemeanor DUI in the United States. Normally, Canada will not admit someone with this conviction directly. However, there are attorneys that specialize in Canadian Immigration, and they can get you a special Visa so that your son can be admitted into Canada. So, the bottom line is yes your son can travel to Canada on a Misdemeanor DUI conviction, but you need special assistance from a Canadian Immigration Attorney.
