Have you been denied entry to Canada or had Canada immigration or Canadian visa application refusal issues? There are several reasons why individuals may be refused entry to Canada, and/or issued exclusion orders.
*An exclusion order is a prohibition from entering Canada, for varying periods of time, for violations under Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.
If you have had a Canada visa or immigration application refusal or been refused or denied entry to Canada, you may still have recourse. Any legal Canadian representative can order the visa officer’s notes on your behalf. The law requires that these notes be detailed enough to explain the reason for the refusal or the denial. If you made an application at a visa office outside of Canada, your representative will order CAIPS (Computer Assisted Immigration Processing System) or FOSS notes if your application was processed in Canada, or at a Canadian port of entry. Both of these systems have been replaced with what is known as GCMS or Global Case Management System. This new system, combines both the old CAIPS and FOSS notes into one database. Until it is used by all Canadian visa offices and ports of entry into Canada, both CAIPS or FOSS and GCMS notes should be requested. Once your representative is in possession of the notes, they will be in a better position to assess your options.
