Home » Inadmissibility


Inadmissibility is considered one of the important immigration issues in Canada. Inadmissibility to Canada means that a person has prohibited from entering Canada without special approval. Immigration inadmissibility refers to all applicants included in the application to Canada. If an individual is willing to bring his family to Canada or be included in a visa application, the whole application and family will be prohibited enter Canada if there are potential criminal or medical inadmissibility issues.

Types Of Inadmissibility

There are three significant categories of inadmissibility to Canada that we most commonly face.

1) Criminal Inadmissibility

Criminal inadmissibility applies to people who have committed a minor or dangerous crime in or outside of Canada. It can cause an individual inadmissible to Canada based on criminal admissibility grounds. Such criminal activities can include:

  • Theft
  • Dangerous driving
  • Driving while taking alcohol or drugs,
  • Assault
  • killing
  • Possession of or drug trafficking or controlled substances
  • Human smuggling
  • Money laundering
  • Organized criminal activity

However, you can overcome criminal inadmissibility:

  • By applying criminal rehabilitation
  • By applying record suspension
  • By applying for a Canadian temporary resident permit.

Medical Inadmissibility

Foreign nationals applying to work, study, visit, or permanently live in Canada suffering from any health issues may be inadmissible to Canada for medical purposes. The infectious diseases that create grounds of inadmissibility include tuberculosis, syphilis, leprosy and others. Such health issues can be dangerous to public health and may provoke excessive demand for health and social services.

Inadmissibility For Misrepresentation

If anyone withholding material information, providing wrong information or sending false documents to the IRRC can make you inadmissible for misrepresentation under Canada’s immigration law. Misrepresentation can result in disapproval of applications, refused visa, loss of permanent or temporary resident status, five years immigration ban to enter Canada, revocation of citizenship and prosecution, and deportation from Canada. However, if an applicant can overcome Misrepresentation inadmissibility, if he/she found innocent and reasonably believed that they were not withholding material information.

How to Remove Inadmissibility

There are two methods to overcome inadmissibility to Canada. These are:

  • Temporary Resident Permit:
  • Request exemption on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds.

Apply For Temporary Resident Permit (TRP)

The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) permits an inadmissible person to apply for a temporary resident permit (TRP). TRP can only be granted to an admissible person under some specific conditions. On this condition, the person can visit Canada for a predetermined amount of time.

Request For Humanitarian and Compassionate Consideration

A Foreign citizen whose permanent residence application is rejected due to inadmissibility may request an exemption for humanitarian and compassionate grounds under some specific factors.
