Denial of Entrance
Your past criminal convictions could be the reason why you have been denied entrance into Canada. Some of the reasons why you could be denied entrance include:
- Being a security risk
- Ties to organized crime
- Serious health problems
- Falsifying documents or giving false statements during an interview
- Failure to meet the regulations of Canada’s immigration law
Before you can be denied entrance, the courts must accept that the same offense you have pending in another country is also a criminal offense in Canada. Some convictions in other countries, such as those based on religious conduct, would not have an equivalent charge in Canada; therefore, you cannot be denied entrance based on the foreign criminal conviction. If you have criminal convictions in Canada, you could be denied entrance – the amount of time will depend on the type of criminal conviction that is on your record.
Even if you have been convicted of a crime, there is still a chance that you could be admitted into Canada. You could apply for temporary entrance, as well as criminal rehabilitation. To learn more, please give us a call.
