In Canada, individuals may be found medically inadmissible for immigration purposes based on three possible reasons: danger to public health, danger to public safety, or excessive demand on health or social services. When a person is found to be medically inadmissible, they will receive a notice and have 60 days to respond to this notice and appeal the decision.
The appeal process for medical inadmissibility involves demonstrating that the individual’s health condition will not endanger public health or safety, or cause excessive demand on Canadian health or social services. This may require providing evidence to support the appeal, such as medical reports and a detailed response to a Procedural Fairness Letter (PFL) from the government.
If a person is found to be medically inadmissible, they may still have options to come to Canada, such as applying for a Temporary Resident Permit or demonstrating Humanitarian and Compassionate (H&C) reasons for being allowed into the country. Seeking the assistance of a Canadian immigration Law Practitioner can be beneficial in navigating the complex nature of medical inadmissibility and determining the best course of action for the individual’s specific circumstances.
It’s crucial to rely on up-to-date and accurate information. Both legal professionals and the official immigration authorities can offer the most current and relevant advice for your case.
