Foreign nationals who have been detained or found guilty of a crime may be deemed criminally inadmissible in Canada. Being criminally inadmissible might cause issues for tourists, even if they are merely passing through Canada and do not intend to stay there. When catching a connecting flight out of Canada, passengers are frequently still obliged to go through Canadian customs. There is no distinction between entering Canada to remain and entering Canada to travel through to another nation in the view of the Canadian border guards. Therefore, whether or not you want to stay in Canada, having a criminal bar to entry can be difficult.
Fortunately, if you plan ahead for your trip, there are alternatives available to you. In order to overcome criminal inadmissibility while travelling through Canada, there are three basic options:
A Temporary Resident Permit (TRP), which provides temporary entrance to Canada for a set length of time, is an alternative for someone who is deemed criminally ineligible. A TRP is utilised when a visitor has a legitimate cause for entering Canada and their advantages surpass any potential threats to Canadian society. Depending on the entrance reason, a TRP application may be granted for a period of up to three years. It is not necessary to serve out a felony term in order to apply for a TRP.
For the purpose of entering Canada, the Canadian government provides the option to submit a criminal rehabilitation application, which will completely erase your prior criminal record. The application for criminal rehabilitation is a one-time fix that doesn’t need to be renewed. An individual is no longer regarded as being inadmissible after gaining approval for criminal rehabilitation, and they would no longer need a TRP to enter Canada.
Including a legal analysis of your case and how it fits into the framework of Canadian law, the legal opinion letter will explain the repercussions of a conviction for the purposes of Canadian immigration. Although the letter cannot remove criminal barring, it can provide justification for your first admission. A TRP application or a criminal rehabilitation application may be presented with the letter. You may also submit it if you have already been found guilty of a crime but the case is still being prosecuted.
We have enrolled ourselves with Winny for Canada Immigration(was referred by a friend) and we are very happy with the service provided by them. We are yet to complete the entire service with them but until now the staff has proven to be knowledgeable, patient, cooperative and helpful. We hope to complete our further immigration procedure in the same way.
Good luck and keep going!
A great place for the overseas solutions, had a conversation with Seema Bhavsar for my Canada visa process, and she guided with all the process and even she explained with very easy methods, earlier i was not sure what to do but after Seema guidance i have started the process. A special thanks to Seema and her team Winny Immigration.
Finding an immigration consultant is no piece of cake but Winny is surely cherry on that cake!! I visited Winny’s Ahmedabad office and it proved to be an one stop solution for everything. Ms. Monika Jha is an amazing counsellor. She cleared all our doubts, gave excellent guidance and regularly checked upon us during the process. The case officers, teaching faculty, counsellors and the admin team at Winny are a 10/10 recommend for immigration.
I am from Ahmedabad and planning to immigrate canada. After inquiry in so many consultancy i found Winny has good transparency. in first inquiry they cleared all my doubt and tell me what is process and how much it take times. Most important is that all process is online. it save time for working professional.
One of the best consulting firms I’ve come across is very transparent and has high-skilled employees. From the last two years, I’ve been planning to go through the Canadian PR process and have visited many consultancy firms for information. Each one gave me different information, but one of my friends suggested Winny Immigration because Winny is an authorized consultant through the Canadian Government. I visited Winny and decided to start my journey with Winny Immigration. The experience and support I received from them was great.
