What is Lack of Status?

Posted in General Immigration

For the purposes of the current public policy, persons with a "lack of status" refers to those in the following situations:

  • Persons who have overstayed a visa, visitor record, work permit, student permit or temporary resident permit,
  • Persons who have worked or studied without being authorized to do so as prescribed by the Act,
  • Persons who have entered Canada without a visa or other document required by the Regulations,
  • Persons who have entered Canada without a valid passport or travel document (provided valid documents are acquired by the time CIC seeks to grant permanent residence),
  • Persons who did not present themselves for examination when initially entering Canada but who did so subsequently.
  • Failure to obtain any required permission to enter Canada after being removed,
  • Persons who have entered Canada with a fraudulent or improperly obtained passport, travel document or visa and who have used the document for misrepresentation under IRPA.
