OMG!! I pray this doesn't happen to us.Hello Everyone !
I have a question regarding the ARC.
I'm sponsoring my husband and he had an interview like 7 months ago.
The interview went well and we received the pre-arrival letter 1 month after the interview.
The agent said to my husband that he needed a ARC but he had to wait till the Mexico VO send a request to pay the $400 fees and the ARC letter.
We patiently waited 7 months after the interview.
We also sent 3 emails to Mexico during that time to see whats hapenning with our file and we always received back the same answer «your file is in process»
We recently received the REFUSAL letter stating that they are refusing the PR request because he doesnt have an ARC.
I sent an email to Mexico telling them that we were waiting for the ARC request and how come they refuse the app without giving us at leat 15 or 30 days to send & pay the ARC?!?
And the answer to my email was: « The decision whether or not to request an Authorization to Return to Canada (ARC) is discretionary »
We are really frustrated.
What do you guys think? Is that normal ?
I'm reading all your comments in this sections and it seems that everybody received the ARC request from their VO.
My husband's case was also bumped up to deportation order.Hello, i have received a letter for me to apply for arc(special letter to submit why i should given the right to return,pay the fee) I got a departure order then turned into deportation due to wrong information.
I am being sponsor by my husband(AINp last stage) I am reading tips that will help us to have a positive ARC application.
Please need help...
Have you appealed the refusal?I know what it feels... but at least they requested the ARC and you should be happy for that.
In my case, they just REFUSED my husband's PR application because he doesn't have an ARC but they NEVER sent us an email requesting the ARC (and we were waiting for that).
When I asked the MEXICO V.O. why they didn't give us the opportunity to send the ARC, they said « The decision whether or not to request an Authorization to Return to Canada (ARC) is discretionary ».
So.. just be patient dear
Hi Lisa,Have you appealed the refusal?
Yes I know it's crazy..Wow, that is crazy! That is good they re-opened the file. That is horrible this whole thing has happened to you.
