Medical Inadmissibility for Immigration in Canada – Case Study

The client was sponsoring his father from Kuwait, and his father was deemed medically inadmissible due to a prior heart condition and major surgery.  The Officer had sent a letter notifying that he was going to refuse the application.

How Niren & Associates Helped

With our firm’s help, the client was able to present strong and convincing arguments as to why the Officer should not refuse his application to sponsor his father. In the end he was successful, and was able to bring his father to Canada!


Angela was great in helping us and meet our short timeline to submit the documents to CIC. We had a medical issue on our parent’s immigration application and she put together a very good package with nicely written cover letter and immigration finally accepted our argument and passed the medical. Very professional.

    Hi… I am a Software Engineer and have Hemophilia A (a genetic disorder not communicable), is it feasible that my immigration to Canada (PR) will be Accepted?

    1. Muga Rajbhandari

      Hello Gaurav. Yes it is feasible if there are no other inadmissibilities, and that your genetic disorder will not be seen as a burden to the Canadian health care system. I am going to suggest that you contact us to make an appointment to talk with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to plan the best strategy for you. You can book an appointment by calling us at 1-416-410-7484 or online at

    Hello Chris,

    Thank you for your post. I am sorry to hear about the refusal of your application, but I am also happy to hear that in terms of your health you are stabilized. It is unfortunate that you were unaware of some steps that you could have gone and taken to appeal that decision as I have personally consulted and retained an individual who was also diagnosed as HIV positive for an appeal on their applications and luckily we were able to help them have that refusal overturned. We deal with hundreds of medical inadmissibility cases here and we are blessed to have a great team of lawyers and legal specialists to help applicants to either appeal or reapply successfully.

    Chris, I really want to help you and I want to hear all about your immigration history and to inform you of all the options available to you. Please do contact our office and book a consultation so that I can explore those possibilities with you. MF

    I applied as a live-in caregiver applicant 2010 hired by my sister in Canada who is a Canadian citizen and when i reached the medical screening test I was diagnosed as HIV positive-I am on ARV started last 2012 but I was never got sick or hospitalized. I was denied due to medical inadmissibility last 2013. Now my father who is a Canadian citizen would like to petition me as an immigrant, I am 33 years old, single/never married. Is there a possibility that i can be an immigrant and stay in Canada and will not be denied again?
