Do You Need an Authorization to Return to Canada?

Have you previously been ordered to leave Canada, and are now wondering what this means for your ability to visit the country again? Being ordered to leave Canada is one of the many reasons an individual may be considered inadmissible to the country, and ultimately not be allowed to enter the country. You will know that you have been ordered to leave Canada if you receive a removal order from Canadian immigration services. If this sounds like the circumstances you face, there is good news! Akrami and Associates has plenty of experience evaluating the unique circumstances individuals may face, and helping each one solve their issue of being inadmissible to the country. Keep reading to find out if you will likely need an authorization to return to Canada (ARC), before you are permitted to enter the country again.

What Is an Authorization to Return to Canada?

An authorization to return to Canada (ARC) is a document any individual who has received a removal order from Canadian immigration services most likely needs, though, there are exceptions. In other words, an ARC is needed for any individual who travels to Canada and fails to comply with the requirements set out in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA). One can fail to comply with the requirements set out in IRPA by staying longer than the standard 6 months individuals are allowed to stay, or longer than is permitted according to their visitor’s visa in their specific circumstance. One can also violate IRPA regulations by working or studying in Canada while they are not permitted to do so, for example. Violating the regulations set out in IRPA do not simply trigger your removal from Canada, it is most likely that following this occurrence, you will require an authorization to return to Canada before you are allowed to enter the country. To be clear, you are often considered inadmissible to Canada if you violate the regulations of the IRPA. An ARC overcomes your status as inadmissible if you are inadmissible as the result of a removal order.

What is a visitor’s Visa?

Are you considering a trip to Canada in the future? Are you wondering what you might need to prepare for the big day to make sure you’re not denied entry at the border? This can be a very stressful process, we know. There are a lot of things to consider to be sure you have all the right documents when you arrive at the border, and this means preparing well in advance. Many citizens who seek entry into Canada come from a non-visa exempt country, which means they’ll need to apply for a visitor’s visa, also known as a temporary resident visa, before they will be permitted to enter Canada. Knowing you need a visitor’s visa is the first step towards success, though, the process of applying for a visa can very nerve-wracking. Because you need to have a valid visitor’s visa before you arrive at the border, you will need to start preparing well in advance to ensure your application is processed and approved on time for your preferred travel date. Therefore, this article will aim to help you understand the process of applying for a visitor’s visa, and explain what a visitor’s visa can allow you to do during your stay in Canada.

Who Needs A Visitor’s Visa?

If you are travelling from a non-visa exempt country, you will need to apply for a visitor’s visa before you arrive at the Canadian border. It is important to understand you cannot apply for a visitor’s visa at the border; you must be able to show an approved visitor’s visa to Canadian immigration officers when you arrive at the border. If you are travelling from a visa-exempt country, you do not need a visitor’s visa to be permitted to enter Canada. Though, it is usually the case that individuals from visa-exempt countries, still require an approved electronic travel authorization (eTA) to be permitted to enter the country.

Overcoming Criminal Inadmissibility

Overcoming-criminal-inadmissibilit_20180501-174050_1
What Is Criminal Inadmissibility?

Have you ever been convicted of a crime? Are you thinking about travelling to Canada? First, you may want to go over your situation to determine whether or not you are considered “criminally inadmissible.” Criminally inadmissible is a term used to describe any individual who has been convicted of an offence which would be considered a crime under the Canadian Criminal Code. In other words, if you would have been charged with a crime for doing the same things you did in your country of origin, while in Canada, you are criminally inadmissible to travel to Canada. There are a variety of reasons you may be considered criminally inadmissible. This includes anything considered an offence in the Canadian Criminal Code, such as being convicted of driving under the influence and dangerous driving, all the way to assault and manslaughter. If this sounds like the situation facing you, you’ll definitely want to carefully consider how your criminal record or any offences you have committed, will affect your admissibility to Canada.

Who Is Considered Criminally Inadmissible To Enter Canada?

As mentioned, anyone who would have been convicted of a criminal offence under the Criminal Code of Canada is criminally inadmissible to enter Canada. It is important to understand that you do not have to have a criminal record in your home country, to be considered criminally inadmissible to Canada. Even though it is usually the case that those who would have a criminal record in Canada also have a record in their country of origin, this is not always the case. One example could be if you are pardoned by the courts in your country of origin, and you effectively have no criminal record. Even if this is the case, if the Canadian courts would not have pardoned your actions, then Canadian border officials will still treat you as if you have a criminal record and you will be criminally inadmissible to enter Canada. A much more common example occurs with citizens of the United States. In the USA, driving under the influence (DUI) is not always pursued as a serious offence. At the same time, driving under the influence is not taken lightly by Canadian courts at all. This is an example of a case in which you may be led to believe your offense is minor and you should be able to enter Canada as a deemed rehabilitated citizen after a 5 year period, rather than a 10 year period. Though, under the Canadian Criminal Code, the offense may not be considered minor, and you may be treated as if you committed a serious offence. The important thing to understand is that your criminal record in your country of origin is not directly transferrable to Canada. Your criminal record from your country of origin is essentially translated to reflect what your record would look like in Canada.

The Process of Applying for an Open-Work Permit

Many foreign nationals would love the opportunity to work in Canada. In many circumstances, this is only possible if you have a valid job offer from a Canadian employer. However, it is also possible for a foreign national to obtain a work permit that is open. This is called the open-work permit.

An open-work permit is a type of work permit in Canada that is not job-specific. Due to this work permit not being job-specific, the foreign national applying for this kind of work permit will not need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada/Service Canada or any evidence that a Canadian employer has submitted an employment offer through the Employer portal. In other words, these work permits are one of the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) exemptions. Therefore, an open-work permit allows the foreign national to work for any Canadian employer, anywhere in Canada.
