Inadmissible to Canada
Canada has two main types of inadmissibility:
Denying entry to Canada: It’s where IRCC refuses an applicant a visa for Security risk, Criminal, Misrepresentation, or Medical reasons.
Affecting a Permanent Residency (PR) application: Barring a person from getting (or maintaining) their PR because of Criminal, Misrepresentation, Medical, or failure to meet their Residency Responsibilities.
Reasons for a person’s inadmissibility can include:
- Criminal Inadmissibility
- Security Risk
- Residency Obligation
- Organized Crime (or connections to it)
- Human rights violations
- Medical Inadmissibility
- Criminal Rehabilitation—at least five years have passed
- Deemed Rehabilitation—more at least ten years have passed since the commission of the offense, and it was only one felony that isn’t a serious crime.
- TRP—a temporary waiver can be extended to an individual along with a work permit, study permit, or a visitor if a person is ineligible for the other two.
- You can satisfactorily respond to the received procedural fairness letter. However, you have to do so before you receive a five-year ban.
- If you are fighting your inadmissibility after receiving a five-year ban inside Canada, you can file a Judicial Review not later than 15 days or two months (if you are doing so outside Canada)
- After receiving your Procedural Fairness Letter, you can seek an attorney’s help to address the issue and reply again.
- Depending on the nature and facts of application refusal, an applicant may overcome some and not others. Get in touch with a reputable immigration attorney to assess your inadmissibility case.
