Denied entry to Canada for a DUI

Being denied entry to Canada happens to people every day. It can be very unexpected, especially if you are unaware that a criminal record for something such as a DUI can cause you to be denied entry. Still, it happens. But it can be highly distressing if you have an emergency in Canada that you need to get to, or if you have made plans for your travel to Canada and they have to be cancelled. Denied entry to Canada

A DUI, a misdemeanor crime or a crime that occurred many years ago are all things that can have a negative effect on your ability to enter Canada. But what can you do?

What to do if you are inadmissible to Canada

If you are inadmissible to Canada for a criminal record, you can apply for criminal rehabilitation or a temporary resident permit. However, not everyone is eligible for these options. Criminal rehabilitation is for people whose criminal record is from a long time ago, and this is a lengthy process that can take several months. However, this is a permanent way of removing your criminal inadmissibility.

A temporary resident permit is for people with certain criminal records, and this is a relatively quick process. Still, that does not mean it is an easy process and you will only be allowed into Canada temporarily if you are approved.

So, I called used VisaPlace (Niren and associates) to assist with the process. Rania and Richard deserve the utmost respect in getting the job done. They have been patient with me and some set backs.
