  Hi everyone
Just a bit of advice....If you´re waiting for an answer from CIC or need some advice, be persistent! I was finding it quite hard to talk with someone at the Canadian High Commission in London and after faxing them over and over again, I finally got a great guy to phone me back and he´s sending everything I need for my situation. My husband was deported and we are currently living in Scotland. I´m Canadian and left my home to be with him. It´s been two years since I´ve been home and i want to visit my family. I want Robert to come with me but had no idea how to go about it. I have FINALLY heard from someone today and I am soooo happy about it. He was positive and told me everything I need to do. Just keep on them.....they ignore you if they don´t think you´re serious!!
It has paid off for me to be a pain in the butt!
Good luck everyone!
Cheers
Li

Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I´m also a Canadian married with three kids to a foreign national, awaiting this nightmare to end. I´ve been holding back contacting the High Comission ´cause I hear they can get vindictive if you bug them. But thanks for your experience, I´ll give it a try.

Li,

I have a situation similar to yours. My husband is not allowed to enter Canada at the moment and I would like for him to visit my family with me. What did this gentlemen tell you?? If you could share some of the information you received, it might help us to visit my parents this year. Thanks!

Starchief,
Because Robert has a DUI charge against him in Canada and he was deported because he was over his stay, he has to fill out the application ´´Rehabilitation for Persons Who Are Inadmissible to Canada Because of Past Criminal Activity´´. The chap´s also sending me another form to fill out, requesting permission for Robert to re-enter Canada. Along with the forms, we have to write a statement quoting why we want to go, for how long and the events that led up to the deportation. My parents are also going to write a letter of reference on Robert´s behalf. What are the reasons why you´re husband can´t go to Canada? I will post more info once I receive the package.
Cheers!
Li

Li,

Thanks for replying to my message. The information you stated about what you need to do is what I have read about on the site of CIC. I just was wondering if you had any other information that I didn´t know about.

I am sponsoring my husband under the Family Class category for Permanent Residence. His file was rejected in Nov. 2003 because he was deemed criminially inadmissible for something he did 12 years ago. We appealed the decision to the Immigration Appeal Division and the appeal was granted. We are now waiting for the visa office in Paris to finish processing our file. But during this process, my husband was told he could not come to Canada as a visitor which he has obeyed for the past two years. But now we are getting annoyed that he can not visit my parents in Canada. They are not getting any younger and we are missing key events in their lives which makes this even harder for us. I guess the only way to see if he can visit is to fill out rehab papers.

Anyway, thanks for your help. Let me know what else you find out regarding this procedure. Thanks and good luck to you!

Li THANK YOU!!!!
I contacted the High Comission and almost immediately found out about their hold up (apparently they´ve "lost" some documents which they "eventually" were going to notify us about). Thanks sooo much again for sharing your experience.
Thanks again.
