Dual Citizenship Travel
I am going to be traveling to Canada soon and was looking to try out using my French passport in conjunction with my US one. I was wondering which passport I should enter into the online flight information, given that it is a round trip flight and I will be entering each country on a different passport. I haven’t seen any information on this quite yet and I’m confused. I understand that I show the French passport at check in the US and the US passport at check in in Canada, but I was unsure with online check in.
Hi Warren, where are you traveling to Canada [I]from[/I]? If it’s from the US, I would probably just use the US passport for the roundtrip, unless you have a reason for not doing so.
In general you have to use your US passport to enter the US, and have to use your EU passport to enter the EU. It doesn’t necessarily matter which you use to enter Canada, but for online check-in you’re only entering your passport info for the upcoming segments, not for the return.
If you use the French passport to enter Canada, you’ll have to register for your Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) on-line. It’s just easier to use your US passport upon entry into Canada.
