Criminal Inadmissibility to Enter Canada and the US4

Immigration Lawyer Evelyn Ackah Answers Your Questions about Criminal Inadmissibility to Enter Canada or the US: Your Options Including US Visa Waivers, TRPs and Rehabilitation 

Known for its friendliness, Canada nonetheless does have policies that allow it to effectively deny admission for those it deems a risk or threat. The most common reasons to be denied entry to Canada for criminal inadmissibility are:

  • Conviction of a crime in Canada or outside of Canada  
  • Involvement in organized crime 
  • Involvement in human rights violations 
  • Committed an act in a foreign nation that is a crime under Canadian law 

Crimes that can result in being denied entry to Canada can include DUI convictions and marijuana possession, even many years ago. 

The United States has similar laws preventing entry into the country from people who have a criminal past.

If you are refused entry to Canada or the United States because of some of those reasons, there may still be ways to enter the country legally. We will discuss the options to enter Canada or the US if you have a conviction in your history on our Facebook LIVE Wednesday, May 22 at 10am MT.
