Denied entry to Canada? We can help.
If you have been denied entry to Canada, you may have felt extremely stressed and upset. Unfortunately, this actually happens often. In addition, you may be concerned that you will be denied entry to Canada and you might avoid coming to Canada because you don’t want to take chances. In most cases, a criminal record causes these denials.
However, a denial of entry to Canada is not the end of the line for you. You actually have options that you can explore in order to overcome or remove your inadmissibility.
Options when you are denied entry to Canada
People who are inadmissible to Canada generally have two options: They may apply for a temporary resident permit (TRP) or they may apply for criminal rehabilitation.
A temporary resident permit is usually the best option when you have a criminal record that is less than five years old. This is a temporary document that will allow you into Canada, but once it expires you will have to apply for another one in order to return to Canada. While these documents can be applied for at the Canadian border, they are not necessarily easy to obtain.
Criminal rehabilitation is an ideal option for suitable candidates who have a criminal record that is over five years old. Criminal rehabilitation is a lengthy application process that cannot be completed at the border, but it is a permanent way of removing your criminal inadmissibility.
We are an immigration law firm that has been helping people overcome and remove their inadmissibility for over 15 years. We are here to help you, too!
