I am going to Fly to Anchorage, Alaska on May 18th and will go 50 miles away to the cruise port to go on a cruise. I am a travel agent and I am there for business reason. It will go to many ports for 7 nights. The 6 nights will be on all Alaska ports but then the last port will be in Vancouver, BC in Canada. I am assuming that Vancouver BC is in Canada. I am on sex offender list in Utah with misdemeanors. I am not on probation anymore. I heard that any felony or misdemeanors cannot enter Canada. Is that true? Is there any exception as I am just going to Vancouver BC port from cruise and then go to the airport and fly home to Utah. Thank you.Roger
State/Country relating to question: Canada
Searching on Google but it is not clear and seems to contradict each other.
It snow balled to the point where there was psychological harm. At age nine I purposly failed third grade to be tested and was promoted based on my test scores. Really don't know how my parents knew that I knew that.
I don't understand your question as it seems unrelated to my issue?
Sometimes, finding the right Expert can take a little longer than expected and we thank you greatly for your understanding. We’ll be in touch again shortly.
When did you last complete your sentence?
Do you mean when I completed the jail sentence or when I completed probation? If jail I finished in March 2007 and my 3 year probation completed in march 2009.
I was assigned one year county jail but with good behavior i served 8 months with work release went to jail nightly and weekends.
Because of your criminal record at first you are considered to be inadmissible to Canada on the basis of criminality. But, once 5 years has passed since your sentence as been completed it is sometimes possible to be deemed to have been rehabilitated when you reach the border. However, there's no guarantee as it's up to the discretion of the immigration office. If you don't want to take a chance at the border the most prudent thing to do is to apply for individual rehabilitation. If this application is successful you will no longer have to be concerned about being turned away at the border. But, it takes over a year to get this processed. So, as you want to come up before then it's sometimes possible to get what is called a Temporary Resident Permit (TRP). This is sometimes granted before the 5 years has passed but usually much closer to the 5 year mark. I am not that optimistic that you can get this so early on. Here is the link to the webpage that explains how rehabilitation works: http://www.cic.gc.ca/ENGLISH/visit/conviction.asp
So, completing the sentence means the day I got released from Jail or the day I got released from probation?
That link you gave me went to an error page. Can you give me the right link?
Still awaiting your answer..
It means the day your got released from probation.The link usually works.Here is another one:http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/guides/5312ETOC.asp
Which application do I need for temporary resident as it says Application for a temporary resident made outside of Canada. I plan to bring the application for temporary resident when I get off the ship to Vancouver, BC Canada and give to the official who gets it right there off the ship. I am in Utah in USA so I am confused if I should fill out application for temporary resident made outside of Canada or what? I plan to get off the cruise and go straight to the airport and fly home to Utah.
You can apply through the closest Canada visa office.Or you can apply at the border.But this is not a temporary resident visa which I believe is what you are looking at.It's for a permit not a visa which is a very different thing.I don't believe the forms for this are available online anymore.
So you are sure it is not online anymore for the application for temporary resident?
All the links I've had to the information and the forms for the permit have been disabled.I believe they want you to get it from the visa office.I think you should call the closest one tomorrow.
