Denied Entry to Canada
Persons seeking to work or enter Canada temporarily or permanently can be denied entry, and issued a refusal. The likelihood of a refusal is greater if a person applies without representation by a lawyer. The reason for refusals often relates to poor supporting documentation and/or the failure to have preparation for any interview that may be issued by a Canadian visa officer.
Similarly, persons whose permanent resident visas were refused are often faced with frustration, after waiting for many years for an assessment. Such refusals should be conveyed to an experienced immigration lawyer for review before the deadline to seek redress at other venues such as the Federal Court of Canada.
A refusal in one’s file can make reapplying for entry into Canada a much more difficult process, not to mention the loss of opportunity to settle in Canada in a timely way. Such delays can often affect dependent children who intend to accompany their parents to Canada to study, or integrate into Canada’s workforce.
Accidentally misrepresenting a fact in an application can often lead to a ban from Canada for two years. This results in serious hardship and a greater challenge to obtain entry into Canada, especially if there is a spouse or child involved in the immigration process. The immigration department is unforgiving despite the fact that an innocent child is affected by the accidental falsehoods of a parental applicant. There are some Canadian laws that can permanently ban a child from being with their parent in Canada due to omissions in forms or misrepresentations.
There may be hope after receiving a denial of entry into Canada. The Chaudhary Law Office has experience in the overturning of such denials of entry which may be carried out at the managerial level of the visa office, the Immigration Refugee Board, or the Federal Court.
