What to Expect at the Canadian Port of Entry

Posted in Temporary Resident Permit

If the Immigration officer has doubts based on the below, the you will be asked to go to Secondary Inspection. At the Secondary Inspections, there are far more questions. Being prepared on how to answer these questions and what to expect at the border is key:

Criminal Inadmissibility

  • has doubts about the person's identity;
  • suspects the person may have a criminal record;
  • believes the person may require documentation such as a work or study permit;
  • has concerns about the length of time the person is requesting in light of their actual travel plans.

Medical Inadmissibility

You become inadmissible to Canada on health grounds if your health condition:

  • is likely to be a danger to public health;
  • is likely to be a danger to public safety; or
  • might reasonably be expected to cause excessive demand on health or social services. Referral for an Immigration Secondary examination is mandatory when a foreign national:
    • is seeking to enter Canada in order to undergo medical treatment; or
    • is obviously ill.

It is not possible, given the time constraints of the primary examination process, to assess the health status of every foreign national seeking authorization to enter Canada.

Usually, prior to enter Canada, you will be asked to undergo a medical examination. For example, most visitor visa applications require you to undergo a medical examination. Obtaining a visitor visa will depend on your medical condition. If you do not pass the medical examination, your visitor visa will be refused.

If you are consider inadmissible to Canada, it is important that you have an experience professional by your side. All types of inadmissibility are complex cases which can seriously impact your immigration application.

Refused Based on Medical Inadmissibility?

Most applications require a medical examination as a normal part of the immigration process. Results are evaluated on a case-by-case basis; therefore, there is no firm list of inadmissible conditions, but in general, individuals with health conditions that may pose a risk to the public health or safety, or a condition that would be deemed to cause excessive demand on Canada's health care and/or social services are considered to be medically inadmissible (the latter is waived in the case of spousal/common-law and child sponsorships).

However, it is possible to challenge this by providing recent and compelling medical reports from a reputable medical professional stating that your medical condition would not cause an "excessive demand" on Canada's social and health care services.

In some cases, those who are medically inadmissible may be issued a Temporary Resident Permit (TRP).

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!
