A Canadian border official has been fired for allegedly accepting a $10,000 bribe in return for allowing members of Justin Bieber's entourage with criminal records to enter Canada.

Bieber's camp reportedly gave a female officer at the Niagara Falls border thousands of dollars in backstage passes to get members of his posse into the country while he performed.

Canada has a strict policy on not allowing people with certain types of criminal records to enter.

It's unclear when the alleged bribes went down ... but Justin performed 2 shows in Toronto last year.

The accusations surfaced after more of Bieber's friends allegedly showed up at the border looking for the same special treatment -- and the officers on duty blew the whistle.

The Canada Border Services agency reportedly circulated an internal memo reminding officers not to take bribes ... and to rat out anyone who does.

We reached out to Bieber's reps ... so far no word back.
