The Express entry system eases the access for the three main economic immigration classes to Canada namely, Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trade class, and the Canadian Experience Class. It scrutinizes applications and ensures that the candidates obtaining scores above certain Points threshold are entitled to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence. Normally, an individual possessing strong command over English or French along with formidable work experience is invited through Express Entry. But his dreams might crash in case of criminal inadmissible to Canada.
Following are the steps to be taken if Criminal inadmissibility on a record is noticed
Criminal inadmissibility comes into picture the moment an individual submits an application for permanent residence to a foreign country. For this, Police verification is done in which police of his home country issues an official copy declaring whether he or his family members are charged with any criminal activity or not. If found guilty, then the person has to take appropriate steps to seek criminal rehabilitation to resolve inadmissibility permanently. The basic eligibility for rehabilitation is the elapse of 5 years from the date on which sentence for an offence was completed pertaining to imprisonment, fine, or any others, as quoted by the CIC News.
An individual has to submit criminal rehabilitation application either before or along with permanent residence one. Criminal rehabilitation application will be first processed and once it is successful, permanent residence application would be approved. Express Entry system normally considers age as an important factor in acquiring Canadian PR, so an individual has to be careful before applying as to avoid extra potential year which otherwise takes 5 years to be eligible for rehabilitation.
Fate of the couple is parallel when it comes to acquiring either Canadian permanent residence through Express entry or criminal admissibility. Here the primary applicant whether married/ in common law relationship or single will submit an application and if approved, he and his wife would acquire it. Similarly in case of criminal inadmissibility also, if one partner is found to be inadmissible to Canada then automatically another partner would also face hindrances in acquiring permanent residence.
The best option for an individual is to consult an Immigration Attorney in case of inadmissibility either their own or that of a spouse.
