The U.S.-Canada border is the largest international border in the world, touching eight Canadian provinces or territories and 13 different U.S. States. There are over 100 border crossing spots and approximately 300,000 people cross this border every single day.
In 2009, almost 40 million crossings were made by Canadians into the United States, which is more than the entire population of Canada.
Since September 11th, 2001 and even before then, security has been heightened between these two countries to ensure that anyone who poses a threat or security risk is not allowed into the United States from Canada or to Canada from the United States.
While this is all well and good, sometimes people who pose no risk or threat at all are caught up in the extra security measures and end up being denied entry to Canada or denied entry to the United States.
Small criminal offenses on your criminal record, health problems, expired visas and insufficient immigration documentation are just a handful of the many problems individuals can experience when they cross the US-Canada border. Many of these problems can cause you to be denied entry to the country you are trying to enter, or result in a time-consuming and expensive delay.
While there are many reasons anyone can be denied entry to Canada or denied entry to the United States when they try to cross the US-Canada border, there is a chance you can overcome or eliminate your inadmissibility. However, this is not easy to do on your own.
