my husband was a refugee claimant in canada, but he immigrated here before anything really happened with that (except that his claim was denied, but deportation had not been issued). long story short, he and his dad had entered canada together, and after nizzar came to the US, his dad went back to india. therefore, canada now has an arrest warrent trying to get nizzar out of canada -- but he's not there anymore. (make any amount of sense?)

my question:

once nizzar becomes a us citizen, is there any way he could ever visit canada again? or would they try to deport him still?

I haven't really got a clue, but I would suspect that he'd be flagged at the port of entry and not allowed in. You might want to contact the RCMP or Immigration Canada to find out how to "clear" the warrant (you can show proof he's not in Canada with the US visa).

he has already tried calling (multiple) canadian embassies to let them know he was no longer in their country, but they didn't seem to care. he emailed them and left a voice mail too ... he's not sure what else to do .... we think it would be nice to visit again because it's a beautiful country.

Has usa /CDn taxes on it , AS WELL as immigration to Canada issues, so they may be able to answer your question there, or be able to point you in the right direction.


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

It was my understanding that nobody cares about the warrant except when you cross the border. These deportation orders are not enforced (still). Thats why everyone freaks out when a deportation order was issued for someone who commits a violent crime. Anyhow I find it strange that someone could get US citizenship with a Canadian warrant out for them unless they are somewhat unforthcoming about their past. Any port in a storm I guess.

Anyhow, If your husband tries to enter Canada they may arrest him. They may not simply turn him away.

On the bright side, if he ever really ticks you off, just tie him up and drop him off at the Canada border and see what happens!! lol (I'm kidding)

He will not be allowed into Canada without a waiver from the Canada consulate. He would also be at risk of arrest at the border.

My advice would not to try it with out direction from the Consulate. Deportation orders are serious and don't just fade away into history.

right now i'm seriously under the impression that there are WAY more countries than canada out there ... really, we've had nothing but trouble out of them.

i don't mean any offence to those of you who are from there ... it's beautiful, but not worth a ruined life.

Canadian immigration is a major pain in the #######, and not only to failed refugee claimants I'll tell you that! Been there done that, that's why I live in the US now :P

If you and your husband ever want to re-visit Canada, he will have to do a lot of paperwork ahead of time, which may take several years to clear.

Find out for sure from the Consulate General in your area (there's a list on their website of CGs in the US) which paperwork he'll need to do and then submitt that. With the foreknowledge that they'll likely lose it half a dozen times, and then when it finally makes it to some adjudicator's desk, it'll be out of date and they'll send it all back asking for updates and yadda yadda yadda. :P

In the end it may well be worth the effort, but the whole process is long and tedious and very very frustrating. Get it done, if only for the off chance that you may want to travel somewhere else in the world, and you end up with a connecting flight somewhere in Canada, you don't want to be caught off guard.

Getting advice from a Canadian immigration lawyer may not hurt also familiar with refugee claims. A lawyer in the US is not going to know or understand the Canadian refugee laws, or basic Canadian immigration laws for that matter.


divorced - April 2010 moved back to Ontario May 2010 and surrendered green card

PLEASE DO NOT PRIVATE MESSAGE ME OR EMAIL ME. I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT CURRENT US IMMIGRATION PROCEDURES!!!!!
