my situation is as follows, and i hope you will be knowledgeble enough to advise me.
My father had applied for refugee status in Canada from 1997 too 2003, since that time I had gotten my high schooling done and also worked for 1 year continously, unfortunatly, our case got rejected and we were sent back to our home country in August 2003. Its been over 6 years since that incident and now i would like to reapply (as a principal applicant, my father was the principle applicant for the refugee case) as a skilled immigrant as i believe i have sufficient experience and skills to be accepted under this visa.
my question is:
Can I apply as a skilled immigrant? or will my past history will have any bearing on my case?
1. You can apply, if you qualify, note that your work experience in Canada won't count as you were a refugee claimant.
2. You will also require an ARC (Authorization to Return to Canada) which will cost you an additional $400.00
3. If CIC paid for your return to your home country, that will an additional $1500.00
