We are dual citizens living in Canada. We are going to US during Xmas. I just find out my daughter's Canadian passport will be expired soon. Her US passport is brand new. Can she use her US passport to come back to Canada?

Canada is not a prickly when it comes to which passport to enter their country on. I tarvel strictly with muy son's US passport with no issues.

Were it the other way 'round, I'd be more nervous, some POE officers have 'problems' with US citizens entering US on other passports.

I would carry her birth cert or Cdn cit card jus ta s a back-up to prove status, but there shoudl be no problem.
nelsona non grata. Non pro. Please Search previous posts, no situation is unique as you might think. Happy Browsing :D

I think there is no problem with that you use any passport.
In your case you have the privilege of being citizen of both countries and you don't need relevant passport to enter respective country.

I just want to make sure this is still current information. I am a Canadian citizen and a U.S. citizen. I have lived in U.S. since 2005. I have valid Canadian and U.S. passports but have not travelled to Canada since becoming a U.S. citizen. I'll be flying from U.S. to Toronto for two days for a family celebration (no business) later this year. I plan to just carry my U.S. passport. Okay?
