Authorization to Return to Canada
Those who are looking to re-enter Canada will require a prior authorization to do so. This authorization is applicable to people who have a Canadian visit visa, or received any of the three removal orders. Those that entered Canada on a visit visa need to get authorization at the time of leaving to re-enter Canada. If you have received a removal order from Canada, then you need and Authorization to Return to Canada (ARC) in order to come back into Canada.
There are three types of removal order:
A person who receives a departure order would be told to leave Canada within 30 days. If a person leaves Canada within that time period and verified their departure with a Canadian Immigration Officer at the port of exit then they do not need an Authorization to Return to Canada ARC for future. They can simply return after a normal examination at the port of entry. However, if the person left Canada without verifying their departure or after the 30 day deadline then the departure order becomes a deportation order and would require an ARC to re-enter Canada. A departure order is issued for a less serious violation of immigration law.
