(WHAM) – Beginning Tuesday, it will be a lot harder for people with DWI or DUI convictions to get into Canada.

Currently, anyone found guilty of driving under the influence is banned from travelling to Canada for 10 years. But under the new law, the ban will not automatically expire at 10 years.

Individuals will be able to apply for re-entry through the Canadian consulate in New York City, but the processing fee will cost $1,000 in Canadian currency.

The travel ban applies to all types of travel, including trains and planes.
