Lying about your Criminality
Often times, individuals may think that disclosing too much information will result in the refusal of the application. As such, they may intentionally omit or provide false information regarding specific aspects of their application. If you are a foreign individual who has criminal inadmissibility, and you decide to lie or not to disclose information about your criminality to an Immigration officer when entering Canada, you may face consequences that are more severe than the refusal of your application. It is, therefore, highly recommended that you need to be honest with Immigration, Refugees, Citizenship Canada at all time. Do not ever think you can get away from being inspected, as immigration officers do have the ability and authority to check entire your criminal record. In this blog, you will learn about the importance of being honest with Immigration, Refugees, Citizenship Canada.
Honesty is the Best Policy
If an immigration officer asks you about your criminality, it is important for you to answer all questions correctly and directly. This also applies to situations where you merely have a minor charge. When you encounter such situation, the immigration officer usually tests you to see whether or not you will respond accurately to the questions. You should, however, always keep in mind that you may still be denied entry to Canada, even if you do disclose the correct information. In order to prevent that from happening, you may apply for a Temporary Resident Permit or a Criminal Rehabilitation before attempting to enter Canada to overcome your criminal inadmissibility.
