Subject: URGENT Re Entry to Canada 17 yrs after deportation
  Hello need help!!

Left (deported) Canada as a student as I was working outside having work permit to work to only work on campus. It was 17 yrs ago. After deportation I came back home and established myself. Past 17 yrs I have grown as a responsible citizen. Today Im engaged with a multinational chain. I need to go back for a business trip. My company will be sponsoring me and there will be an invite from a Fortune 100 company as well as a large Canadian firm. I will be there for 5 days. Expenses will be borne by my company. I will also be carrying enough CAD$$ to sustain for the duration of the visit.

I know of ARC. Do I have to go through that? What records do they retain of people leaving 17 yrs ago? Can I simply make a fresh application and wait to see if they approve. Can Immigration Canada still stop me from entering or refuse to grant entry visa. What´s the best advice here? I will really appreciate the suggestion here.

Requesting kind inputs please.
Regards
A

Yes - if you were actually deported, then you will definitely need an ARC to return. You haven´t said if you are visa exempt or not. If you are visa exempt, then immigration could certainly refuse you entry into Canada without the ARC. If you are non visa exempt and require a visa to enter Canada, then you need to provide the details of the deportation on your visa application and the ARC will be processed as part of the visa application automatically. If you fail to include the details of the deportation on the visa and CIC finds out, this is misrepresentation which is a two year ban from entering Canada.

You are this big succesful Businessman and your asking this question on an Immigration forum because you can´t find any Immigration Counsel that knows about an ARC?

Seems strange to me.

Hi Roy

It´s not that I can´t find a lawyer. It´s difficult to find one in the country I live who specializes in Canadian Immigration Law. If you do know one who I can reach out to that will be really helpful. It doesn´t matter where he/she is based out of.

As for the other comment posted. I´m not really sure what I need to look for in the deportation document. There was no marks in the old passport. I also dont recall a document specifically mentioning the word deportation. I was asked to leave, and not having the funds Canadian Govt paid for the return ticket. I did have few documents which was handed out to me on departure. 17 yrs ago when I returned I filed them away and have never really looked back. Yes there was a form given to me. So any specific forms (document #) I should be looking / watching out for.

It seems avoidance is presumed guilt / violation leading to conviction with 2 yrs entry ban. To be fair I was a bit reluctant to recall & revisit 17 yr old memories and was hoping that CIC will hopefully not dig so far down. But seems like its unavoidable.

However for obvious facts I´m sure you will agree that this is not something glorified to talk about and certainly not something I wish to bring up with my corporate. It´s a dark spot which I do intend to keep aside.

Having said that I also do need to travel for work. So Roy if you or anyone in the forum can guide me as to what I should be doing to reapply. If anyone knows a firm I can directly interact with, who before I process my fresh visa application, can help resolve this issue, it will be much appreciated.

Thanks for both the response and I do sincerely appreciate your time.

Regards

First you must repay removal costs then send $400.00 for your ARC application. You would of been given a confirmation of departure certificate. You also had a client ID# UCI which with that anyone knowing the business can find out everything about you when it comes to your Immigration history.

Far more logical you were excluded only for one year. But you claim two years so they caught you lying as well??? Therefore you could have only been excluded for two years, not deported!

Failing that most good Counsels can find out based on your date of birth, name and country of birth.

"It seems avoidance is presumed guilt / violation leading to conviction with 2 yrs entry ban."

You presume wrong.

The visa application specifically asks "Have you ever been ordered to leave Canada or any other country?" If you answer no - you are lying. Lying = misrepresentation. Misrepresentation = two year ban from entering Canada.

Gentlemen

Thanks. I hear you. I shall comply. I will try and dig out the form.

Roy I wasn´t lying to CIC. 2 yrs that I was referring to was the possible ban if I don´t represent the questions in the VISA application form. I do understand the implications.

I do need some help in finding someone who I can provide immigration related assistance. How do I find out how much I need to pay for air tickets. Who do I need to contact? What´s the process?

Any consultants I should contact at this point.

Thanks for all the help extended. Much appreciated.

Regards

Canada did not improve one bit from the day you were thrown out so I would say just forget this whole mess an dbe happy in your place; if you are disgusted by the place of your birth, no one can heal you..... good luck.

Canada paid your removal cost? Chances are, you need an ARC.

Yes, the records are kept. If you are inadmissible, you won´t get a visa until you pay the cost of your removal and the fees for an arc.

If you are from a visa exempt country is even worse, because you are going to travel all the way just to be refused of entry right at the border.

What records do they retain of people leaving 17 yrs ago?

As same record entered 17 years ago.

Once information entered in the file, forever remained, however wrong or right.
