What About Travel To Canada If The Infraction Was Years Past?
What if it’s been less than five years since completion of a sentence (including probation)? Does this mean you can’t travel to Canada since the person isn’t eligible for an Approved of Rehabilitation? In that instance he or she may apply for a temporary resident permit, and request special permission to enter or remain in Canada, but this may take six months to a year to process.
Failure to address these immigration issues can result in disastrous consequences beyond a botched vacation. Chaudhary dealt with one individual who failed to seek a Temporary Resident Permit was stopped at Customs and Immigrations in Toronto, detained, and returned to Denver the next morning. Unable to close a multi-million dollar sale, he lost his job as a vice-president in the cellular phone industry. Another client who failed to seek a Temporary Resident Permit was stopped, questioned, and permitted to enter Canada for business, but was counseled she would not always be so lucky.
