Gucci Mane won't be left out in the cold when his upcoming tour heads North of the border ... Canada is allowing the rapper to enter the country even though he's had a checkered past.
We've learned Gucci Mane has obtained a temporary resident permit to enter Canada later this month for a string of 10 scheduled gigs across 5 provinces. This is no small feat. Canada's notoriously tough, eh, on people with prior convictions -- and Gucci's long rap sheet could've been enough for a denial.
Sources at the Canada Border Services Agency tell TMZ ... anyone crossing the border into Canada must demonstrate they meet the requirements to enter or stay in the country, and involvement in criminal activity is cause to prevent someone from entering.
As you know ... Gucci Mane's broken the law several times. He got busted in 2013 for violating probation by carrying a gun, and served 39 months before getting released in 2016. However, he's kept his nose clean since then.
