not clear on backround question "refused admission to Canada?"

Discussion in 'Family Class Sponsorship' started by thedude, Jul 1, 2009.

  1. To make sure you answer truthfully.. and yes it is for visa applications as well as I said way up :) It's still being denied entry even from your own country. I answered YES
     
  2. Boncuk have the right answer, I had called CIC-M when I completed my application and wanted to make sure since my husband was granted a visa, if I put yes or no to that specific question do they need an explanation.
    They had confirmed if he was refused for a visa that I can give some explanation at the bottom.
    So yes if you had refused for a visa visitor it's the same refused entering Canada.
     
  3. Boncuk, Marlena and I are just trying to help and prevent anyone from making mistakes when they fill out the forms. WE didn't write the law nor did the consultants or lawyers. The government did that.

    You asked about these questions:

    Have you, or, if you are the principal applicant, any of your family members listed in your application for permanent residence in Canada, ever:

    - previously sought refugee status in Canada or applied for a Canadian immigrant or permanent residence visa or visitor or temporary resident visa?
    This question asks if you have ever APPLIED for any type of immigration status for Canada, NOT whether or not you received it.

    - been refused refugee status in, or an immigrant or permanent resident visa or visitor or temporary resident visa to, Canada....?
    This question asks if you have ever been refused any application for immigration status to Canada.

    - been refused admission to, or ordered to leave, Canada or any other country?
    This question does repeat what the previous question asks BUT it also asks about removal FROM Canada and ANY OTHER COUNTRY.

    This form is the same for both visa-exempt and non-visa exempt countries. They are being repetitive but they are trying to cover all scenarios from both types of countries.
     
  4. Thanks for the help :) Hope this can help other people as well
     
  5. please help

    I have a question, if someone had illegally stayed in the US and is barred for 10years and went home in his own country, are we still gonna say yes to that question in the application, even he didn't went back to the US and not really refused on admission? hope someone will reply. Thank you!
     
  6. Personally I think this is because we look so far into this process that we miss the general.

    If you need a visitor visa to enter any country your application for the visitor visa is basically asking this question: "I would like to enter X country to visit, is that ok?". If you are denied a visitor visa it is the representative answering you thus: "No, I'm afraid you cannot visit".

    If you are from a visa waived country then the only opportunity you have is to ask this question at a POE, you do this when you give your passport to the CBP officer. At this point only then does the opportunity arise for the officer to say no you cannot visit.

    To the OP: as rjessome and ariell have said, just accompany your Yes response with an explanation.
     
  7. He was ordered to leave the USA, so should put 'yes' for the question "been refused admission to, or ordered to leave, Canada, or any other country." Answering 'yes' does not mean his PR application will be refused. It just means the visa officer will check into the situation a bit more. Lying, and then being found out, will get you banned for misrepresentation.
     
  8. I took this to mean that if the applicant has applied for a visa to Canada before, but was denied, he should write 'yes' to the first 2, and 'no' to the third. To me, the third question means you are denied entry at the border. This is how my husband answered these three - yes, yes, no. He had applied for a TRV and been refused, but had never actually shown up at the Canadian border and been refused entry. The visa officer, government lawyer at the appeal, and the judge at the appeal had no problem with this section of his application.

    Keep in mind that if you answer yes to any of these questions, you have to explain, so if you fully explain what happened the visa officer will see that you are not ticking the 'no' box in an effort to mislead them. Therefore no danger of being found guilty of misrepresentation. In the same vein, though, if you do tick 'yes' for the third, even if the answer should have been 'no', they are also going to see your explanation and will not think you are trying to lie.
     
  9. Wow i didnt think it was that confusing,its pretty self stating but thats just me.......wether it was a visa or at the POE if you didnt get the visa you were refused entry.If you were deported or asked to leave another country then you were ordered to leave,

    the first one asks if you applied for any sort of status.
    the second asked if you were refused any sort of status applied for
    the third asks if you were asked to leave or deported from Canada or any other country or were not addmissable which means you applied and were found inaddmissable.

    SO for the third if you applied for a visit visa and were refused the visa you were found inaddmissable.
     
  10. what if you were refused a visa from another country, let's say like USA and if we do tick yes (we have to be truthful anyways, cos even if we put no on the forms, they'll still know cos of the stamp in the backpage of the passport that would say "US EMBASSY, Application received DATe:"...would they investigate that as well???
     
  11. I think yes just to know the reason why you were refused a visa.
     
  12. I think if you are not sure, put 'yes'. So I would answer 'yes' for the third one if I was refused a US visa. Then explain. If it is not relevant, having explained won't hurt you. But putting 'no' for the third question when the visa officer thinks having been refused a US visa means you should have ticked 'yes', may hurt you.
     
  13. Thank you very much for your reply. his situation is he went home voluntarily because of some family issues back home but he was not ordered to leave the USA, will he still say "yes" to it? thanxs again!
