There are many reasons why a person may be denied entry into Canada. These reasons could include:
- Human or international rights violations
- Criminality (even DUIs and DWIs)
- Organized criminality
- Health grounds
- Financial reasons
- Misrepresentation (of any kind)
- Noncompliance with IRPA
Even having an admissable family member can cause you to be denied. Normally, if you are inadmissible to Canada, you will not be allowed to enter, unless you know how to prepare the 'right' paperwork. If you have a 'reason' to travel to Canada that is justified in the circumstances, you may be issued a temporary resident permit (TRP).
The appeal options for a Canadian visa refusal are:
- Making a request for restoration to the Case Processing Centre or CPC
- Appealing your Canadian visa refusal to the Immigration Adjudication Division, or IAD
- Appealing your Canadian visa refusal to the Federal Court of Canada
Which option for appealing against a Canadian visa refusal is right for you depends on many things, including what type of visa application it was. Did you apply for permanent residency, or did you apply for a Canadian visitor visa or study visa? Different avenues of appeal are better suited for different types of visas and personal circumstances. You may only have as few as thirty days to appeal your Canadian visa refusal. This is a very short deadline and you must act quickly.Learn More
If you're charged of any crime outside Canada regardless whether you're charged was withdrawn or pardoned and you had a conditional sentence, you may be found inadmissible to Canada.
Option 1: For people who intend to visit Canada urgently due to work related matter or emergency family issues etc. If you're in a such situation, you may be able to address your inadmissibility at the airport or at the Canadian consulate by submitting a temporary resident permit application or known as TRP. As the name suggests, it is a temporary solution and may allow you to enter Canada only once.
Option 2: Criminal rehabilitation application, will allow you to remove your inadmissibility to Canada from your records, so in the future you may be able to travel to Canada with no obstruction. These applications are submitted to the consulate or visa office overseas, and it may take many months for processing. But if you approach this solution as permanent, if you have a past criminal record and want to cross the border, I suggest you to consider consulting immigration professionals to avoid any complication that may arise during the processing.
