Please share your experience about Criminal Rehabilitation application in 2017

Discussion in 'General - All Canadian Immigration' started by seekingCR2, Jun 18, 2017.

  1. Hi All,

    Is there anyone recently applied for criminal rehabilitation in 2017 or late 2016? I know there is very less information on criminal rehab information such as processing time, success rate. I thought if we can use this thread to share our experience and help each other. My application has been received on 05/18/2017 by Los Angeles, Consulate office and i am not sure how long they will take to process my application. I am doing this process because i want to immigrate to Canada and i am not sure if i can apply for immigration without criminal rehab application get approved. Please share any kind of knowledge or information or experience about criminal rehabilitation.

    I hope to see lot of response to this post.

    Thanks
     
  2. You can apply for immigration. However CIC won't fully process or approve your application until the rehabilitation application is approved. Rehab can take anywhere from a few weeks to over a years. Processing times are very individual and it's impossible for any of us to guess how long yours will take.
     
  3. Thank you for your reply. My receipt notice says "Current processing time take 12-18 months from the date of receipt". Currently i have enough points to qualify for Express entry since i have PhD and have good IELTS score but this is the only thing is holding me up. Not sure if i should apply right now or wait till my application get approved.
     
  4. I would wait until your rehab application is approved before you apply for EE.
     
  5. Hi there. I agree that there is very little information available first-hand from people who have applied. While browsing through google landed on your query. I applied for Rehab back in second week of January 2017 and on 24th January I submitted on online PR application. So answering your question you can apply for both at the same time. Just add a letter of explantion on your PR application explaining that you have also submitted a rehabilitation application for whatever you were convicted or charged of. Your PR NOT get rejected based on your inadmissility. However, do expect your PR processing time to increase. Hope this helps :) good luck!
     
  6. Thank you for your response. I have careless driving on my record. My criminal rehab application was received on May 18th. I am also planning to apply for PR soon by the end of August. Keep us posted on your case. Good luck with your both application.
     
  7. Hi, Please keep me posted how does your both application go? My criminal rehab application was received by Los Angeles office on May 18th 2017. I hope it will be adjudicated soon. I will also keep you posted if i hear anything sooner. Good luck to you too.
     
  8. Sure thing! Both my applications are being processed by Vienna VO. I ordered my GCMS notes on PR application and seems like elibility has passed and background is being processed. My PR would only move forward upon approval of the rehab application. Either way I'll keep you posted. Did you also submit your PR?
     
  9. Thanks man! Good luck with collecting your all necessary docs for the PR. Hope we both get through, uptil now I can only say have a mountain of patience and some more when that runs out :D rehabilitation really slows things.
